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.”
