I Walk a Mile

I put your shoes on
The left shoe is worn
A hole in the sole
Tape surrounds the leather exterior
It covers the hole

The right shoe doesn’t match
It seems smaller, less worn
It is binding, tight
It is borrowed

I walk a mile, maybe two
An unbalanced stride
My left foot is cold
My right is blistered
I respect your journey
