shoes (did you know)

shoes (did you know)

there we were in a hotel room

alone & together
a rare & precious thing

me watching you
take out those shoes
cork platform soles with long white cloth straps for your ankles

& as you carefully put on each shoe
wrapping & unwrapping
to get them just right

i wondered if you knew
when you bought them
that this would fill my chest

& now that this moment is behind us
when you are putting on those shoes
do you pause thinking of me

a man carrying that memory
beneath the surface of his skin
itching to untie those shoes

slipping them from your feet only
