Querulous Shoe

Querulous Shoe

    I'm all worn 
   out. Would you 
   look at my heel? 
   She leaves pieces 
   of me all over this
   campus. Whoever
    bricked the walkway
     did not consider the 
      stiletto's plight. And my 
       chafing toe cap, awful.
       Given what she paid for
        me you'd    think she'd take 
         me to           a  cobbler once in a while? 
         Give               me a makeover! Show me some 
          love                -- instead the girl walks all over and within me, 
           by                      me. Her need breaks my sole. She just cannot 
           go	                           a single step without my most supportive arch.
