>I love shoes big tent poetry #10


I love shoes

dirty, filthy, festering shoes

they tell the story …

of those who wore them

slavering miscreants

some of them boring

philandering scumbags

telling their stories

where they walked

and who they walked on

that’s a sermon

the end of a psalm

barefooted jesus’s

dancing in the closet

never failing

to take my money

I went to the airport the other day

I had a green shirt … in my way

I pulled out my shoe

it went away

its ugly shoes

its ugly shoes

  1. >If only shoes could talk, they would certainly have adventures to share! Clver lines — "where they walked and who they walked on"

  2. >I love shoes too. I smile at "barefoot Jesus's dancing in the closet." I enjoyed your poem!

  3. >You took shoes to another level.Great post!

  4. >Yet another sideways look at the prompt. I didn't understand the Jesus in the closet line, but the rest is fab. I never throw shoes away until they fall to bits and I've a cupboard full of history to prove it.

  5. >I consider shoe-buying a religious experience, so that's what I thought of the Jesus in the closet. Could be wrong, though…actually this made me think of a shoe poem I wrote long ago – I may post it next sometime, and if I do I'm going to link it back to this one, if ya don't mind. 😉

  6. >I like the twist on walking in someone else's shoes. Can't get that image of barefoot jesus's dancing out of my head now 🙂

  7. >I haven't bought shoes in awhile, though there's not much need now, with the heat (sandals are the world's friend) =). A great post, and an interesting take on the prompt!-Weasel
