Consider…

Posted: January 19, 2011 in poetry, shoes

Consider a human being.

Consider the bare soles of a fetus pushing

On the walls of it’s mother’s womb.

Consider the disintegration into dust of

That mother’s skeletal foot in a grave.

Footprints in the snow or sand will also die away

Like my shadow at the end of a long, hard day.
