Wolfram’s Terrarium

Alison is starting to wonder about Wolfram.

Not only does he watch a lot of Hitchcock movies

but when they had a romantic dinner at his house

he showed her his terrarium.

In a five gallon tank above his television

Wolfram is keeping a Givenchy thong stiletto

and a Gianni Milanesi two-banded slide.

Alison knows lots of people

who keep shoes but she can’t help feeling that it is cruel

to keep two adult-sized sandals in anything less

than a ten gallon tank. “Sometimes,” Alison’s thinking,

“little things reveal a man’s soul.”
