Antiphonal Running Shoes

stop running, and they sing

Putting on these shoes and tying the knots activates them. You may barely notice the faint liturgical-like voices at first. Singing. One shoe answering the other in song. After a while, they build in volume, until it becomes almost embarrassing. Only by running can you stop them. And you must run a certain distance, or else the singing slowly begins anew…

(…this idea came to me in a dream. I’d just put on my running shoes, the result of a new year’s resolution. Immediately falling into a swoon on the sofa, I awoke to the antiphonal mewing of cats in either ear…)
