What does the owner 
of "The Shoe Fixer" 
do all day long, 
in this world 
of disposable treads?

Does he pretend 
to fly kites in Moscow, 
or play a friendly game 
of football on the blood 
stained stones 
of Tiananmen Square, 
trying to forget 
his Irene, 
with her lovely 
manicured feet 
and french 
manicured toes?
