I’ve used my pedal parts so many years –
I’ve danced on them and made them bear my weight –
it isn’t any wonder what appears
shoes-off is not a sight that’s looking great.
But that’s from an imperfect point of view
rejected now – what was I thinking of?
I’m shifting focus, feeling something new,
and mean to show my feet a little love.
I’ve always been selective in my shoes.
I gave up heels. I practice ankle rolls.
I vary what I wear and try to use
my feet with care, but now I press my soles
in self-massage – I knead and then oppose –
I interlace my fingers with my toes.
