‘Left behind: baby shoes. Clearly worn’

Six word story

I’d like to believe he took ’em off drunk because he bet his friends he could run a mile on bare feet while wearing a turkey costume, got tired, crawled in the ditch, fell asleep, woke up and couldn’t remember a thing.

Cage dancing in the humid rain,

for some boy to come along and pick her up to take her home. Making sure she would not end up two streets down where pet food included chopsticks, instead of tinned cans.
