  1. ‘If only you would take off
    The boots and socks
    That hold up your angry words
    To feel the cold earth
    as it really is’



  2. I like having the next line that is unspoken be unspoken. Is there a reply to the first speaker, or is there smoldering silence, or stepping out of metaphorical boots onto the cold ground?

  3. I enjoyed this and would have loved for it to sprawl down a bit further. Having reading some of your other poems I expected it to, and so was slightly disappointed. But still a very enjoyable read with a fantastic picture to boot.


  4. In my Birkenstocks, reading this, I wondered what Dorothy or Cinderella might think.
    Love poem ? I suppose so. After all, like love, slippers are easy to slide into and …slip off.


  5. Wearing slippers to do away with the irritations of differences is a great idea. I used to have a pair like the man is wearing.


  6. My father used to say that a man’s shoes say a lot about him, never overlook the importance of good shoes, properly shined. You have really hit on something here!


  7. this is so interesting to think on!
    how might one’s perceptions and moods be influenced by the changing of footwear…………. Good Post!! cheers, Debi πŸ™‚


  8. I do love a great pair of slippers and I love this poem too!


  9. I love it! I’m giggling at the idea of wearing slippers together, especially the ones in the photo, which look like some kind of invention for sweeping or dusting while you walk. πŸ™‚
