    The accumulation of conflict
    my body to tense
    every mussle feels stressed
    to relax is to not acknowledge the truth
    the relief is against me now
    its shows no shame
    this glass of wine in my hand
    is my best friend
    as is swirls down my throat
    like a swish of clear water to quench your thirst
    not a penny in my pocket
    and my shoes are a season behind
    the chill of the wind on my feet
    needs attention
    paid too...
    the new shoes in the window...
    can i trade you these shoes for those shoes right now?
    can i just take them off my feet and take these off, "here, here these are for you"
    "you take those shoes, they're a little worn but you'll blend in better this way..."
    and i'll go on....:)

    like a contrast between a nude stripper and a burlesque dancer, things left to the imagination are quite often so much better to the palate. i tasted this...and it tasted well. THANK you.
