Shoes the ugly writers

Shoes

Shoes

Sometimes shoes

can become iconic,

represent us,

make a statement

about ourselves,

about who we are.

Sometimes,

about who we are eternally

only wearing heels,

only wearing trainers,

only wearing boots.

Sometimes,

about our temporary selves,

tonight in heels,

with platforms,

or without.

Tomorrow in trainers,

or maybe boots,

or sandals,

depending on the weather.

Or piles of shoes

heaped up like bodies

any old how

in a mass grave.

Or laid out in lines

ready for disposal

in a graveyard

neatly

represent ourselves,

us,

how we were,

how we are,

what we have

become.
