Suede Expression

Red Suede Shoes take the sad boy
to skid row. With the riches of plastic jewelry,
with the lust for starving ribs
streams of piss and tears on the sidewalk cracks help the weeds grow.

Red Suede Shoes take the sad boy
to the alleys and corners behind the hipster cafes.
Steel factories blowing up barbie dolls and mickey mouse sweatshirts
purple smogs and underpaid mothers make the poison sun go round.

Red Suede Shoes take the sad boy
to the forest lawn where the dead flowers and dead humans are
under the grass, Earth’s pubic hair.
He stands over his father’s corpse, talking and talking, mostly a one sided dialogue.

Red Suede Shoes take the street boy
to the winds. Away from the white abyss of walls and wood and knobs
safe from the suffocating carpet, lamb’s pubic hair.
Where the experience is rot but rot is real and real is beautiful.

Red Suede Shoes accompanied with
pain, curiosity, and the soles of his feet
take the once sad man
to his enlightenment.

And he kisses the dirty pair, caressing their laces
because he loves them,
he fucking loves them.
