Holy Shoe

Cold permeates my shoe
A single point
Opposite the ball
On the right side
A hole
Worn clean through
The loved pair of shoes
So light
So comfortable
Didn’t last six months
From wear every day
Would I purchase these shoes
Once again
If a warranty doesn’t pan out
It depends
I suppose
They are lovely shoes
I’d wear them sparingly
Perhaps at work
No more at home
Day to day
Or bike rides
Along the lake
Just short periods
On marble and concrete
Forty hours a week
No more
No less
