HomePoetry Storiessensible shoes / burnished love

sensible shoes / burnished love

Upbeat nod to CS Lewis's take on Beauty + the Beast or fairytales where lovers are cursed + parted

sensible shoes kicked off in the foyer

reclining across the overstuffed

furnishing our shared liebesraum

by turns hitched to helios

or bathed in lunacy

a lipstick kiss left on a mirror

love burnishes the glass

of twelve hours 

forever separating us
