Sometimes I cry when the snow comes down and I look at my feet. It’s not that they are bad feet, but only that around here no one seems to have feet anymore. It began imperceptibly. My rich friend Natasha came home from somewhere over the ocean wearing metal fabric wrapped around her toes, and I was too polite to ask. Every day she pressed a button, and her feet shrank. One day she had feet, then hooves, then nothing. Now I’m quite afraid and embarrassed, not only because I can’t afford the shrinking shoes, but because Natasha has just bought a hat.
