Red Shoes


I had a dream I had a pair of red shoes
Like the ones you're wearing
And I leaped into them and then
I could see the future
And together we drove this very bus across a field
There wasn't anything for it to eat
We drove with it to the sea
It couldn't survive in saltwater
It was only a bus, not like one of those crocodiles
We abandoned it
Swam back to shore
Wept for it
Clicked our heels
Which dug into sand—what have we done, you asked me
