  A huge shoe mounts up from the horizon,

squealing and grinding forward on small wheels,

even as a man sitting to breakfast on his veranda

is suddenly engulfed in a great shadow, almost

the size of the night . . .

  He looks up and sees a huge shoe

ponderously mounting out of the earth.

  Up in the unlaced ankle-part an old woman

stands at a helm behind the great tongue curled

forward; the thick laces dragging like ships' rope

on the ground as the huge thing squeals and

grinds forward; children everywhere, they look

from the shoelace holes, they crowd about the

old woman, even as she pilots this huge shoe

over the earth . . .



  Soon the huge shoe is descending the

opposite horizon, a monstrous snail squealing

and grinding into the earth . . .



  The man turns to his breakfast again, but sees

it's been wounded, the yolk of one of his eggs is

bleeding . . .
