size five and a half

my mom used to
always be obsessed
with her perfectly
formed feet

these days it’s all
she can do to look
down and admire
her shoes

I sent her a new white
pair one shoe with
a red rabbit the other
with flowers

she won’t remember
who sent the shoes
or how longs she has
had them but

she’ll smile and tap
her heels together
and giggle like
a second grader
