Assorted sizes lazily sprawled about the floor,
Leaning upon one another, holding each other up.
Velcro undone, laces loosened and splayed,
Soles bent, tongues pulled out.
Proud scuffs tell their stories,
Grass stains, splattered paint, city subway dirt.
Each pair worn from their travels,
Tired from their journey.
Reunited by the moon.
Until the morning sun beckons them away.
