The Pedestrian

Avatar Author: zxvasdf an implosion of thought Read Bio

He picked up a pair of baby shoes that had somehow found its way to the top of an overflowing trash can. He looked at the shoes for a long moment, trying to decipher its history.

Realizing doing so was a paper chase through the fecundity of his invention, he looked around and said to himself, “I think I will put just this one baby shoe in that parking lot so another speculative soul may come along to wonder about its origins, and arrive at much more extravagant conclusions than myself.”

He walked to the parking lot and dropped the baby shoe.

    Oh, what a crafty and wicked thought. Did he sit near by to see who took notice and started writing?

    I can only wonder what happened if he let some crimson paint spatter on the asphalt next to the shoe, perhaps flecking its surface.
