Your Favorite Mowing Shoes

Your Favorite Mowing Shoes

By Stacy Post

The ones
That track grass
Throughout the house

The ones
That scuff the
Kitchen tile
With black streaks
Protesting fresh polish

The ones
That couldn’t even catch
A clear plastic bag
Rolling alongside the road

(Forgive me)
The trash can
Was hollow
Longed to be filled
Its hinges stiff
From lack of use

Your shoes
Were just sitting there
The grass a
Tickertape parade

They were so easy to lift
So easy to toss

The sound so satisfying
When they dropped to the bottom.

– refers to “A clear plastic bag/rolls alongside the road” from Tires Win by Debbie Feller

  1. “so easy to toss” . ..wonderful, Stacy! This got me smiling. I could picture the whole thing. And it’s fun to have a poem referred off of something I wrote. 🙂

  2. Enjoyed this, Stacy! Well done – as usual. 🙂

  3. Okay, wow, I really get WCW’s “Plums” coming through here! Very nice!

  4. Thank you, ladies! I appreciate the read!
