Rookie (Batavia, NY)


Yesterday, I dreamed of high-heeled shoes,

Stumbling in my first pair of “big girl shoes”
As ankles rolled over the unaccustomed height.
Platform sandals and missing the bottom stair.
Wore them again after the swelling and pain went away.

Striding with the sharp staccato sounds of my heels dancing
ahead of me and echoing off the walls of the hallway.
