Sandalwood, Frankincense Shoes

My shoes are on dreams of feet
heading in different directions.

Each one
pausing
in mystic doorways
of scented Myrrh oil
curio shops
each looking inside
and out
for it’s sole

(if they ever had any to begin with;
memory grows dim in a crowd).

But something began this walk;

something like meridian smoke
and horizons
undone by sand;
something like the palm of a hand
with pale mist
swirling up
from the lines.

They are empty shoes,
lest for their laces
holding their shells together;

and the tongue
that keeps feeding their journey
for only

more

road,

towards
a dream of feet
imagined first
as hope.
