these old shoes have seen a lot of miles and a lot of smiles
like slipping my feet into butter
but might be time to let them melt softly into the sunset.
“an old shoe lover loves old shoes.”
yes, these are my glitter shoes again, brought out for special occasions.
while i do so love to be barefoot or in sandals whenever possible
there are times when shoes are needed,
like novemeber-march in michigan
and sometimes on small holidays or dance party fridays.
“when I die I don’t want to be wearing shoes.
i want to have just enough notice so that I can pull them off and get comfortable.
shoes mean death snuck up on you.
shoes mean you had other plans.”
-jason buchholz, a paper son
when you want to change the color of your shoes
but don’t have a job
to make the money to buy them
and no one will hire you
just because you are a 4-year-old
even though you have a lot of energy
you find your own way to get those turquoise shoes.
“a busy mind is full of thoughts, a blissful mind is full of ideas.”
