charles bukowski -- shoes

A great poem; vintage Bukowski---subtle humor, street wise, and expressed
with accessible realism---the decline of the libido in advancing age. The
shoes are a symbol of female sensuality.

This poem isn't about a love for shoes.
This poem is about a lack of a presense.
Someone there that has or will be in those shoes,
and as you get older, it matters less and less.
