New Shoes

“New Shoes!” they shout. “Here comes New Shoes.”
People that don’t know me
Look at my feet,
But my name is Huw Ossen
And it’s an anagram,
Sort of.
There are worse nicknames I suppose.
It’s funny that when you have a nickname
You feel that you have to live up to it.
I often look at my feet myself
And I worry about what I see,
But not enough to actually go out and buy
New shoes.
February 2105
