Living in Shoes – poem by Gail Winters


Living in Shoes

New shoes, true shoes, even Clarks’ school shoes, wedges, sometimes no shoes, clean shoes, smelly shoes, fading away at the seams shoes, travelling shoes, fashionable shoes, kicking in the goal shoes, losing the sole shoes whilst singing the blues shoes, making your dreams come true shoes, safe shoes, dangerous shoes, mind the time I fell over because of my shoes, skipping shoes, teen platform shoes, muddy harrier running shoes, sensible white nursing shoes, celebration shoes, high heeled open toed shoes, flat, black patent shoes, sparkly dancing shoes, carrying them home at the taxi rank shoes, having fun with friends shoes, dating shoes, laughing and loving shoes, standing up and singing soul shoes, buckle up for the ride shoes, wedding shoes, mother shoes, walking the floor burping shoes, learning and teaching shoes, helping and healing shoes, caring shoes, walking in widows shoes, sad and mad and angry shoes, hoping and wishing shoes, keep on keeping on shoes, in the future nana shoes, still to buy shoes, life in the old girl yet shoes.
