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.
