Shoe Fly

A lonely sandal
lost in the dunes
far from the water’s edge
makes me wonder
how one foot can tread on
naked
while the other’s still dressed

until I recall
things I have lost
without a clue
as to
where they went

Why is my mind so bent
on this familiar event

Maybe this shoe
just slipped away
It was time for it to go
to grow
It has evolved
adapted to its environment
is happy doing its thing

And some day
its former partner
will fly away
too

only for them
to meet again
in the end
