Shells and Shoes
He was strong says the multitude of weights on the floor.
He was military says the shotgun with used scattered shells on the porch.
He loved running says the holes in his tennis shoes.
The hair dryer in the bathroom says he had a wife,
with two boys says the bunk beds littered with toys.
Also a dog says the upside down bowl in the kennel.
The place was desolate says the tumble weeds as they roll.
There was a fight says the bullet holes in the wall.
They won't be coming back says the deep tire grooves in the dirt.
