Monday Morning Mary: Let the Shoe Drop


Let the Shoe Drop

You live like you are waiting
for the other shoe

like the man upstairs
just sat on his bed

and realized he left you

you dread the sound
of dread to come

go upstairs and knock
the door is unlocked

a flock of clouds
and sky are waiting

and the shoe
which has always been

in your other hand
is really a white dove

that will, if you let it, float
up toward its mate, and drop

a perfect feather
into your happy lap
