Her ugly salmon sneakers hang by ratty shoelaces when she takes them from the vendor. I tell her to toss them lest she get a disease from her gross salmon sneakers. Her garish salmon sneakers pitter-patter gladly, mocking me and staying forever. She says she won’t ever buy another pair since she’s got her salmon sneakers. Her silly salmon sneakers stay on even through our reception, our vows, and our wedding. Though I do finally get them off that same night, her wondrous salmon sneakers. Her busted salmon sneakers trip her up before she steps in front of a speeding driver. As I scold her, I don’t even think I’m grateful to her old salmon sneakers. Her galling salmon sneakers always stay two steps ahead of me and everyone she knows. If only they outpaced the ones she didn’t know, her ******* salmon sneakers. Her stupid salmon sneakers never grace her feet again, and I know she’d have hated that. I don’t care because that’s all I have left of her, her ****** salmon sneakers. Her dreary salmon sneakers seem so lifeless without her because she was what gave them life. And I wish with all that’s left that she was there, not her hollow salmon sneakers.
