a good boot

my clean boots
are set in a row
i like to look at them
as the one true proof
that i existed

they show me
how i’d like to be –
the laces twine
thick leather binds –
never weak or weary.

a good boot is
so supportive
that it practically
walks through hell
by its own volition!

how fine to see
them in a line
and to reflect
on the measureless
distance wandered
