New Shoes

New Shoes

After taking off my perfectly fitting skin
I get the courage to begin
Trying on new leather
And whether
I like it or not
My old shoes are shot
With stigmatic flesh wounds on the bottom,
Two years after I got ‘em.

It’s time for me to replace
The open space
With newer shoes
That are whole,
With a newly created sole.
