Shoes

My feet hurt – they ache and burn

As I force them into fashionable shapes.

I can’t hop to attention,

I can’t run if I’m chased.

There are no kicks to punctuate my screams.

I blame my feet.

They will not conform to the newest obsession

They are too fat, to flat just a rebellious gathering of toes.

My feet hurt –

They resist being stretched, stuffed and

Crammed into the wrong pair of shoes.

I clumsily stumble unable to balance

In a fashion multimedia show. 

Brilliant creations drafted by artists

Who personally hate my feet.

Aching complaints sedate and control,

Inching forward on tippy toe

Each stride hobbles my sense.

Paying top dollar to vogue’s hefty toll.

And yet my feet hurt!Image
