Waiting For the Other Shoe…
I’ve heard that some women go gaga
for cobbled goods– Manolos and Gucci shoes
Fendi’s and Jimmy Choos.
There’s that old joke about Imelda Marcos
that crops up when a lady collects
All these stereotypes:
Closets full of shoes and handbags–
another myth like that infamous line:
“Do I look fat in this?”
I don’t really care about shoes.
Less than 10 pair resides
in my closet–
Crocs, runners,sandals and slippers …
if the shoe fits … I’ll wear it.
What’s of much more interest to me,
are those isolated roadside runaways —
the pair of plimsoles dangling from a tree
or telephone wire, the old boot
rotting on the beach, the luxury-loafer
on the freeway verge.
How does a person lose one shoe? (It’s
inevitably a man’s, have you noticed?)
Is it tossed casually from an open car-window?
Perhaps, dapper drunk dude dangled
his foot over the edge?
Or maybe something more sinister
