shoes

stranger
shoes clean and shiny and neat
sensibly encasing two small feet

    friend
    shoes keeping step two pairs
    walking paths climbing stairs

      lover
      shoes side by side properly standing
      clothes neatly folded on the landing

        stranger
        shoes one knocked over askew by its pair
       angrily she dressed to run down the stairs

         end
         shoe heels clack hard down concrete
         across the path and along the street

             stranger
                            friend          
                               lover                     
                                     stranger           
                                                end
