Rhythm in her shoes

Rhythm in her shoes

That slapped the floor

Rat-ta-tat-tat a plastic

Environment and sweat

That slid down her legs

Became a beat for me

To hopscotch in my dreams.

Dirty feet cadence again and

The clacking of fingers on keys

Will resonate in counterpoint

To her rag-time resistance.

I love summer shoes.
