- “Shoes” by Hilary Seserko
- Poetry of two voices
- Visuals: A tennis shoe and a high heel
I am a shoe I am a shoe
My sole is worn My sole is stiff
from pounding from stomping
on pavement. on pavement.
I smell like sweat, I smell like perfume,
endurance, and pain. excitement, and pain.
I give support. I give confidence.
I am a challenge. I am fancy.
I only hang out with I only hang out with
sports bras, t-shirts, dresses, skirts,
and spandex. and tights.
I can run, I can work,
I am strong I am powerful
only when I join only when I join
with her foot.
