What legacy did Imelda leave?

Hording shoes like baby digits

The upping of a posture

High heeled to legs at the top

And toes as red as crimson

Slide into slippers that feed foot balm

Tripping over a staircase made of slithery soles

Ankle straps made of a misrepresented blossoming

Sensible professorship’s happy feet

Of flats and laces

Trainers for the untrained eye

And feet binding the gang plank walk

Aboard the ship sailing on the sea of womanhood.
