Abandoned Shoes: At Attention

I found these boots in Shadyside on Wednesday, July 27.

Although they have clearly been abandoned, as evidenced by the dumpster, they still stand at attention, as though waiting, with utter certainty, that their feet shall return. I imagine them waiting through the night and into the morning, trash day, waiting still on the ride to the dump, waiting in the landfill, and waiting, waiting, waiting, as they decay.
