The Shoes

Author’s note: The following was my response to a flash fiction challenge to compose a story about a picture of shoes:

Spring and balmy weather were a splendid combination for a street sale so they brought out all the shoes and boots which were of course neatly tied together so there would be no confusion. It was their way to be tidy and organized.

The price was the same for any pair and they stretched down the street and out of sight because there were so many. The greedy buyers happily brought their new treasures to the sales stand where they paid a pittance.

Across the street and behind the electrified fences, the crematoriums quietly dispensed with the former owners.
