Red Shoes

Dressed like East Germans, in their drab coats;
The approaching couple are walking slowly, under a heavy grey sky.
A small dog pulling them forward along the sidewalk,
They might be husband and wife
Or daughter and father – It's hard to say.
But the brightness of her red shoes
Lights up the street
And whispers "daughter."
