Friday Flash 55 — not from my closet


The woman who wears these is
not a woman, but a little girl.
No — not a little girl, but a little
nuts.

She shows off
in her boots and takes cuts
in lines, thinking she is simply
precious.

In a way she’s right, for nuts
like her are precious and few.
And fashion forward too.

Written for Friday Flash 55 - My post in exactly 55 words - for the G-Man.

Not from mine, either. But perhaps from Veronica's Closet.

I like those shoes. Court Jesters deserve a little leeway.

Yikes!

Ugh! Those are obscene. I think we're entering another tasteless age, like the fifties, for future generations to make fun of. Your poem itself is quirky and clever and in much better taste than the shoes.

Well - they DO create attention! :)

Perfect post poem! This is my sister to "boot" for sure!

How are you doing?

Love,

Rhi

I once had a pair of high-heeled white leather sneakers that I painted myself. Kudos if she made these herself but I suspect not.

Great verse.

the world of women and their relationship to shoes is as far and distant a strange land to men as are the ice banks of titan

the male equivalent is probably for those of us who work in offices and wear "humorous" ties (IE ones that have smurfs on them, or play christmas carols) to show that underneath the suit there is still a person

but its designer shoes that get me - a couple of hundred quid just for the pleasure of having a high heel lined with a bit of red carpet??

Get yourself some cheap £20 shoes and give the difference to charity that's what i say

Hi Everyone~ These shoes brought out the silly in me and I appreciate all these fun comments. Thank you!
