the heel leans sideways
a tower of pisa

ankle straps give a forward thrust
destination the ball of the foot

toes are left evenly spread
by cutting a windowed toe exit

a twisted red bow
pinned sideways off the arch’s apex
portends to frustrate those with a foot fetish
desiring to undo the strap
stroke the evenly lined up toes
the high instep

all is left unsaid
yet all will be said in the first step        juli Jana
