Old fashion tinkerbell shoes

Old fashion tinkerbell shoes pit-a-pat between the sound where my footsteps collide,

In high heels I sit crouched comfortably,
feeling happy and the urge to read women’s magazines and smoke cigarettes to rest my swollen knees…

While the world views me through the broken glass of a bus stop…
I view it as an automatic typewriter typing the unwanted stories that we live, unstoppable, incessant…

To think i did it all, and only missed 4 buses in total, fell ill 3 separate
times with 2 major infections while only speaking 1 language that wasn’t my mother tongue…

I begin to travel again, looking for solitude and friendship in the wake of
my shoes that hang poetically over the Mexican telephone wire….

Much to be done tomorrow, and still lots to do today…
