I've worn brand new yellow shoes as my Polish great grandmother pulled me along,
You must login to vote
Velcro sandals on far off sands,
vomit splattered Airwalks in assorted airports,
desert afternoon blue Sambas on the tennis court,
borrowed water-proof work boots while we built Rainier's "Wonderland Trail,"
Shiny black England made loafers at University art parties,
and I just got my third pair of Vans(they work well with orthotics,)
not regaled with dragons like the first,
or a subtle tan like the second,
but a breathing black and grey with civilizing streaks of maroon.
