Hello, everyone! So, the good thing is I’m back for another post! The sad thing is that I don’t have my next “Discourse Grammar in The Name of the Wind” ready for ya’ll yet (I swear, Southern accents and late-night posts seem to go hand-in-hand with me…).
Anyway, I am slowly trying to move over to my new apartment (in the summer—bad idea), and I also just turned in my last paper for my “English as A Global Language” class. I am exhausted.
In recompense, I will be posting another one of my poems. To be honest, this one could use a little work. What do you guys think I could do to improve it? Feel free to comment! 🙂
Shopping for Shoes on Main Street
I saw you lying on a shelf and
knew you had to be mine,
your glitzy gold perfection
sending me to another time
when money dripped in honeyed
ripplets, blazing lights refracted
in the tinkling of champagne.
But now my glass is empty
and the bright lights turn
my eyes. I put you back
on the shelf, slip on my pair
of runners and go stand in line.
