shoes

keep falling in love with strangers and you’ll confirm
that it’s not the fall that kills you, but the sudden
stop

there are endless mysteriously sad eyes
half-surrendered smiles and quiet meals
to run barefoot through fields to. i know you
dream of what was lost
but hear me out, i’m from a keep-your-shoes-on
kind of family and that bit of cautious
discomfort keeps the glass out of your heels
