Poem #185 of 365

i look down at my feet.
i’ve walked a long way.
and i see, well, actually, remember,
that i’ve got no shoes anymore.

i’ve been walking without shoes,
and i’ve walked a long way
for a long time,

and i’ve done pretty good
without them, so
my feet must be calloused,
they must be strong,
cuz i hardly noticed.

i’ve done without shoes
all this very long time.

that’s what it feels like
to walk
and to live
without daddy right now.
