    Reminds me of one of mine from a visit to Thailand:

    sandals clog
    the temple entrance—
    sand between my toes

    Cool. It's a Cambodian holiday honoring the dead.

    Just like sand, our footwear can clog up everything. I wonder how many items of footwear there are in the world right now?

    There are so many items of footwear in the world, I wonder how many, and which planet could they reach if they were put end to end?

    Nicely done. The practice of leaving ones shoes off before entering is a lost respect in this country
