80s-Vintage-Dr-Martens-14-Eye-Black-Quilon-Boots

Amy’s Doc Martens

Had mismatched soles,

When she sauntered

To England and back,

 

And then left Florida

For good. In her first

Will, she left

The 14-eye boots

To me and they

Collect dust on top

Of the memories

We shared.

 

She was up – left foot.

And down – right foot.

And the medicine never

Even had a chance

To help her. Scribbled

Wills and songs and Fridays

 

We’re in love. “I don’t care

if Monday’s blue.” Except,

 

She did. And

No amount of dancing in circles,

Jumping in her bouncing soles

At the Back Rail could

Lead her way to Tuesday.

 

This is Poem #62 from the  Poem (almost) Everyday Project. Starting in mid-January 2016, I decided for one year to wake mornings and write a poem before my first cup of coffee on each day that I didn’t teach. I was working part-time then, so in the end I wrote 241 poems.  These are second drafts of  those pieces copied directly from my journal with minimal editing from their “vomit draft” state.
