men without shoes

Men without shoes are
either
crazy or criminal

feet uncovered, on asphalt
built by hands, glittering
in gold

he stole bread
only to have shoes
taken away

men without shoes are
either
crazy or criminal

mad as day,
they’d say
because he has no shoes

in a hand,
a bottle of liquor
and a smile

mad

he is sprawled on a
park bench
drunk out of his mind

who bears to walk
without shoes?

who took his shoes
away?
