Foot for Word

Holes in my soles

Toes find ground

Digging into burrows

 

Foot for Word

Electrical feet

In my bathtub

I cross my toes

 

Foot for Word

Diabetic numbing

Weight pounding

Mom muddles through

 

Foot for Word

Line up at starting gate

Instigating politics

Left right left

 

Foot for Word

Bound women’s feet

For beauty they’re

Left crippled, sitting

 

Foot for Word

For mice and owls

One drifts over trees

One tip toes in leaves

 

Foot for Word

Step forward, march

Half step, whole step

Stand on Dada’s feet

 

Foot for Word

Dancing ants reading

Each note tapped out

B-flat foot swinging

 

Foot for Word

Stamp your feet

Cry out for soul food

Heal our foot soldiers

 

Foot for Word

The soul fish café

Serves sole soup

That’s S-O-L-E fish soup

 

Foot for Word

The sole of a snail is

A single slimy bottom

A line is drawn after

 

Foot for Word

Two eyes ears hands legs

We walk towards foot lights

Bow down to feet

 

Foot for Word

Words grow on tea leaves

Shoes grow from branches

Birds nest in shoes

 

Foot for Word

Used for travel to

And fro to many places

Where to take a stand?

 

Foot for Word

Baring my sole

I leave my foot prints

Underwater in the sand
