    Did you mention red shoes? ? Yesss. I'm still looking for that perfect red pair to replace a long-gone pair of favourite Italian leather courts I wore till they died of old age.
    Love the poem, Allie. Red goes so well with black or grey....

    Love, Fran xxx (Report) Reply

    Such visual contrasts juxtaposed all in the name of that bold primary hue. Great write Alison. Justine. (Report) Reply

    Hey, any poem that mentions the Rhode Island Red and communism and clown noses gets my vote for most eclectic. Fun read!
