In Consideration Of The Other Shoe

when the other shoe drops
the universe continues
light in the darkest

when the other shoe drops
take the next trembling breath in
and brew revival

when the other shoe drops
we are presented with options:
choose to continue
looking up for the next shoe
and the shoe after that
syllables and shoes.
Consider instead
the possibility
that whoever dropped all that footwear
is barefoot now, too.
Done with shoes,
let us wriggle our many eager toes
in delicious anticipation
of walking together
through soft grass
and warm sand
towards the infinite ocean
