Ode to Pricey Shoes

Could she ever live without them?
Without black satin four inch Louboutin pumps-without pumps.
Without the glitter, the bows, and the scent
so intoxicating
to her shoe-needing spirit
only to hold one and smell
its soothing spell-which could mend it all
if you have enough
money! Money
will get her all the Louboutins Christian can make in his lifetime-
but she first needs a man.
A man to watch her undress as she keeps on
a pair of pink suede peep-toes
that arch her back
"You look priceless," he'll tell her, "Those shoes
were made for you."
Yes, one day. But for now,
It's the Christian love affair.


  1. I really enjoyed this. I was full of humor and had an extremely youthful tone. It's also pretty obvious that this author knows their way around a pair of shoes. It was extremely fun to read. Keep up the good work :)

  2. The contrast between shoes and sleep is amusing, taking something obviously necessary for existence, and playing it against the sort of classic luxury turned necessity, makes one question what you really need in life.
