Just Shoes

“Just Shoes”

I tried to find Doc Martens
but settled for stilettos,
harbingers of whiskey
and sex, cigarettes
dangling from naked fingers
in a hotel bed.

You are like the dog
panting just outside
my jail cell bars,
holding the keys
in your mouth
and I’m still hungover and begging
while balancing in heels.

A little edgy and fanciful piece inspired, in part, by Pirates of the Caribbean. The muse waits everywhere. Please visit this link to obtain a print collection of my poetry. Thank you for your support!
