Places that I am going; Places You Have not Been


These shoes are much too big to fill
but even when filled they are hollow still
and the feet that walked in their path before
they do not get around much anymore-

well, they have their way, you see with steps
about this weary consciousness
that pains with every spoken word,
harried thought and crooked stare

but it is not the steps taken that bother me
not the calculated manipulation of these clicking heels
or borrowed will to move- wait no, it is just that-
this lack luster dream that drives these feet to travel
farther along a path of hopeful passion
though no end is near.
