The Perfect Fit

Poem Commentary

Sometimes profound wisdom comes at the most unexpected times. A friend asked me to go shoe shopping with her the other day; we arrive at the mall and she's excited there's a big sale. An attractive saleman approaches her; Hello, "May I be of assistance". She goes on and on for about 10 minutes, discribing the types of shoes she looking for: the different styles, the colors, the size, the materials, the height of the heels, the brands of designers, when and what she going to wear them for and provides a price range. After shopping we went to brunch; the topic of finding a mate came up in conversation; she said, "I really like to find the right guy, the perfect fit". I asked her what's she looking for in a guy? She replied, "I'm not sure, I don't know". Hence this bit of humor is dedicated to my sweet friend; hoping that she'll spend as much time thinking about what she wants in a mate as she does shoes.

The Perfect Fit

The Perfect Fit
 
 
Selecting a lover-partner...
 
like buying a pair of shoes 
 
when we're young
 
we go for stylish
 
when we're mature
 
we go for comfort
 
at any age, or stage
 
it's always best
 
not to shop in the bargain basement
 
it leaves too many callused - Hearts.
 
Afterall when your feet hurt, everything hurts!

Quick, clean, no caffeine. This is some of your better work, though for me, I'm sticking with the pair of shoes I've got.

twaynecking - Quick yes indeed, I write off the top of my head; I suppose I'm an unintended poet! Ty, even my best is light years away from anything that would be considered poetry; I mostly enjoy reading poetry. Those closest to me would say, "Janice you're a social poet"...LOL. Bravo my friend, stick with the shoes you've got through thick and thin; they bend and move with you each and every step of the way; God smiles as you journey on together paving the way...see his footprints; I know you do, and so does a man who is forced to walk without shoes. Peace, Love and Light.

Julia thanks for visiting my humble home...sometimes the truth is a funny thing...LOL, peace, light and love friend

Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
