What To Do With the Shoes?

by Bryce R. Piper

Do I keep the shoes?
His favorite pair:
Black wingtips, high shine.
New laces, a sole
Replaced once or twice.
Friends will parade by,
Wish their last goodbye
As reposed he lies
At peace.
None will see his feet
Covered by a lid
As they filter by.
Do I keep the shoes?
