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.
