Bye Bye, Tanned Toes

Well its just not right, is it?

A whole Summer’s freedom-

Feet cool in the breeze,

Flip Flop Free

Sand, Sea, Sun…

Then SHOES.

Straight-laced sweaty incarceration.

No in-between.

From free range toes to battery piggies.

You know what? I HATE IT.

Hemming in my soles.

I’ve seven hours before my toes return to teaching.

Until then, I’ll wiggle them with pride.
