White shoes with the insides out
Sensible flats for a lawn party
Something I could wear again
that would take the day-to-day living,
that expanded round my feet comfortable like.
A little scuff, a little scratch
made them less white
You didn’t notice
One day I looked down and they were tattered
These white shoes I bought for my wedding,
I am throwing them out today.
