Those Shoes…

What are you doing wearing those shoes?

They’re not yours; they don’t even fit you.

I know you really love them

but they won’t last too long,

they’re too big by a size or two.


Will you stand up straight, please?

Put your shoulders back.

Damn it, put your chin up,

Don’t you remember how to act?


Its not like you’ve never tried on shoes before.

Keep walking in that pair and your feet will hurt even more.


“They’re not really mine, anyways,

I gave them back to my friend.

He decided no shoes was inconvenient for him

so he put them back on again”

– Jaime L. Smith
