Shoes on the Wall

posted by on November 30 at 9:26 AM

This morning, what a lovely sight! A row of ladies’ shoes.

I'm no expert, but the second shoe in might only technically be a "ladies" shoe.

Of course they'll walk again! With a one legged Chinese lady named "Irene"...

Those shoes will keep on walking, because that's just what they do.

One of these days, those shoes are going to walk all over you.

They do look like drag queen sizes, don't they?

That was way too easy.

not a looker in the bunch. they may very well walk again, but they shouldn't.

I love it! I saw those on my way in to work today, too and despite running late had to run across the street and snap a few shots myself. I'll post 1 or both to the Stranger flickr site later tonight.

Those shoes totally made my day.

charles, what a lovely little bit of prose. an ode to spinsters.

I think the fact that none of them pair is very interesting. Some commenters see a one-legged woman or drag-queen, I see vengeance. A spurned lover, an angry room-mate, someone pissed off and acting it out. I imagine someone plotting how best to hurt and taking the half that destroys the whole.

the other shoe's heels are wedged in the foreheads of some fuck-knobs who messed with one angry and righteous queen.

Give them to us veterans-We could probably use some singles here.

Actually, how about an administration change as well?
