That Penny loafer

Robust man,
yes I,  
and wanting,
far from feeble

But her lips,
they were
pink and swollen
when I came in that room,
she had been waiting
for mine entry

And at the bedrooms 
open window,
on its ledge;
the loan Penny loafer,
mine reason for the gawp
and feeling forlorn

    Mystery of the penny loafer - what is the reader to think? Was it a daring escape by a secret lover? Had he, indeed, fallen from the window to his death 40 stories below? Had she been contemplating suicide and at the last minute brought her foot back in. Check the street 40 stories below for the other loafer. And, lastly, was she a two-legged person, the revelation he learned when viewing the single loafer. Now I have it! Check the street for her - 40 stories below. Dashing write dear James. Love, daver

    what was the meaning of the penny loafer on the ledge, James? I loved the imagery of you and of her in the first two stanzas!

    Somebody went out the window... Check into the closet! : ) Tell me who wears those shoes! : ) Exceptional! ..."they were pink and swollen"... Nah! She wasnt waiting for this persona...moreover, she wasnt expecting his arrive! : ) I think it was a "C. Interruptus"! I can go on....Great write, James! Ruben.
