What constitutes a shoe?

What constitutes a shoe? 
The leather bound tongues of
inglorious pomp,
ambling midst the glades…
 
pugilistic caffeine panders 
solely to the soul,
ergonomically agile, 
bar the finest detail…

eye-lashed straps 
entrenched in the name, 
toiling syllabic misnomers, 
shorn against the scornful 
blood of erstwhile colonialism,
perpetually in memorandum…

    Congrats on having this one featured, William. Great use of language...I suppose one could make a pun of "pomp" - and "pump" ;-)

    William, this is not just a great write, it shows the genius of a master craftsman ... I want to congratulate and encourage you ... when we can feel what we see we can write our emotions on thoughts ... for the poet's vision is always the esoteric knowing of cosmic things ... blessings and light.

    Congrats once again as you are being honoured once again with another feature of the week. We can’t get this kind of well deserved honour else where other than poetrysoup. Keep writing, you are a great poet… Leke
