We'va all seen it. Na'ar a man speak of id though. The odd pools of bloo..d. The floating shoes.... Yah every sailed up on the corpse of the the dead, found her belly full of shoes? My pappi had a story bout dim shoes. Heard tellings late at night, sayings by the strangers in the dark on Fire island. ev' seen stout ruthless men be brung to drinking their own tears, weepin their ales full. Guess it be mai turn at the barrel, dis eve. Sure nuff wev all seen de shoes. and de blood, and de bellys full of boots. Like all things cruel and loving dis tall begins and ends with a story bout a lass, and de thangs her hart wanted but she na'ar cud have.
