      I get why he’s sad. He missed the sale. It’s like seeing a flyer for REM’s Work Tour with 10,000 Maniacs opening and knowing that train left the station five years ago.

      • Or being there at a certain NJ state university where they were going to perform and forsaking the concert for a paper that was due the next day.

    The Lonely Shoe Lying on the Road
    by Muriel Spark

    One sad shoe that someone has probably flung
    out of a car or truck. Why only one?

    This happens on an average one year
    in four. But always throughout my
    life, my travels, I see it like
    a memorandum. Something I have
    forgotten to remember,

    that there are always
    mysteries in life. That shoes
    do not always go in pairs, any more
    than we do. That one fits;
    the other, not. That children can
    thoughtlessly and in a merry fashion
    chuck out someone’s shoe, split up
    someone’s life.

    But usually that shoe that I
    see is a man’s, old, worn, the sole
    parted from the upper.
    Then why did the owner keep the other,
    keep it to himself? Was he
    afraid (as I so often am with
    inanimate objects) to hurt its feelings?
    That one shoe in the road invokes
    my awe and my sad pity.

      That Muriel Spark wrote poetry was something I had
      forgotten to remember.

      Great catch, brother. Thanks for sharing this.
