Profile of an Old Shoe
by Sonam Bhutia
Bookmark and Share
  Old, tattered and torn
Full of wrinkles,
punctures and mundane
Devoid of charm and luster
Shunned by each
and all,
like curse.

Substituted by new
and energetic perfection
And discarded the imperfection,
feeble and unabled,
into a nook'
or in a gutter.
As dethroned a king,
from disabled reign.

Nonetheless, it's new
and perfect
To destitutes and paupers
Who darn punctures
and tatters,
into bizarre'
shapes and colors.
"And here I am once again,
to serve and muffle'
your wretched bare feet."
