Shoes (January day 8)

I will use

my shoes to follow you

into every cave I have never seen


I will use

my hands to stop you

from pushing me into the corner because you can


I will use

my pen to treasure you

believe me, this is the highest praise I know


and as long as you don’t

take away my trails

lock up my hands

I will take pieces of you and scatter them over my shoulders
