Dr. Scholl’s sandals

Gave way to Reeboks when fire ants

Swarmed me in protest

After I blindly

Stumbled through dirt-mound homes

In barefoot pain

Reeboks were ok

Until I slid in the mud

So then tried clogs

Teetered too much so they gave way to

Black, nail-studded combat boots I wear ‘til today

Racing rattlers scared

Making their “S” shape

Indentations in shifting

But dangerous sands

Nature determines

Footwear and dictates dress codes

When we cohabit
