Shoes

The roses that you brought this morning
smelled like dog piss
and wilted well before noon.
That, and you tracked a mess
of strange dirt all over my kitchen floor.

My horoscope said that you was a waste
of my powerful carnal energies.

But, what can I say?
I love a nice pair of shoes.

Fiction in 55 for my G-Man!

Who want's pissy flowers? Skip to the shoes.

Terribly clever, MZ. I'm a flower girl at heart, so the rank roses would be met by a shoe, just sayin ~

What a fun 55!

Well done. Who doesn't love a nice pair of shoes?

Ah, concessions - it's always about concessions :-)

Brendan said...

Who doesn't settle for settling for, in the name of a nice pair of shoes? And yet, something about that that world-weary compromising also helps deflate the notion that perfect love exists, that there's a lover anywhere who doesn't spoil the ardor of roses with his own ordure's odor. Nice 55, a sharp stiletto heel driven down on your own side of the street. Brendan

I would rather have a nice pair of shoes than a bouquet of roses any day.
