Three sized shoe

Uncategorized

This six-year-shoe

sits at the doorstep

filed through mud and sand 

all the mountains you walked –

so now it is curled to to your foot

like a bandage pressed to a certain kind of cut

and as the healing peels it back 

it sheds.

I imagine keeping it forever

the way some people

keep bronze casts of baby’s feet 

– because the healing is so fast

– mud, dust, these things mother’s wipe away – 

and cannot be interrupted.
