A lifetime of care: step after step
Exactly where those other feet stepped
And in the same rhythm. In the same way.
A lifetime of homage: day after day
Of matching and following – toe, heel, toe, heel.
Too earnest to see that the shape of the foot
Doesn’t fit – the width, length, and depth
The sole cannot match. Look, and you’ll see
A lifetime attempt at what cannot be.
