barefoot

The tips of my shoes are like tigers
my brown rubber soles are the eyes
walking and holding you in my sights;

run rabbit run

Your tail holds all of your secrets
trailing you around seedy corners
interrupting the dust that has settled;

you ruin everything you touch

Stinging my eyes with your footsteps
sealing my eyes with your sadness
but I do know where you’ve been
and I don’t want to know what you mean
you will be nothing to me.

Your incessant reminder perturbs me
so I will walk through the puddles again
in my toughest tiger tipped shoes
kicking up the water

I am so tired of this scent

remove
remove
remove

I could stay here all day
dancing like this
because it makes you disappear

until the dust settles and I am barefoot again.
