Epitaph for a Pair of Old Shoes by Donald Justice

Humble, born to the earth,

They knew where they stood.

When they moved,

It was because they must.

Anger moved them,

And the desire to be elsewhere,

 

Or something in them

Responding to music.

They knew also

What waiting can be.

Side by side, they mastered it,

Like an old married couple.
