shoes ramble on---Totally Optional Prompts
Totally Optional Prompts wants us to write about places
sun beats down on my back
tarpaulins has holes, i barely notice.
my wares are placed haphazardly,
right in front of me.
nails, polish, strings, leather,
plastics with solutions of various hues.
disarrayed shoes, clogs, sandals
lie in wait to be renewed.
i might stay at the same place
for forty odds years now,
repairing broken, torn down shoes
soles reattached, fixed with glue.
stayed, i have not in one place, shoes
do have tales to tell of places visited.
