If you follow your bliss, you will always have your bliss, money or not. If you follow money, you may lose it, and you will have nothing ~ Joseph Campbell

students in slippers

it is 45 degrees in Massachusetts
the 4 janurary storms we had
leave their slushy, muddy waters
collecting over clogged storm drains

There is no safe place to walk
with out rubbers
over shoes
or without boots
each step surrounds the sole
in mucky water

Why are there students in slippers
walking around campus
avoiding the deepest puddles
only to step sideways out of houseshoes (as my vo called them)
and land sole down
on a patch of dirty slush.

how cool it is
to sit in a 50 minute class
with wet socks
and to walk with the beds of the slippers
oozing water and making a sickening squelsh
when they get up to throw something out

the praticed non-chalance of going to class in slippers
only a charade
It's not just the right shoes anymore
that you have to worry about
houseshoes have their own brands
with designers
all the way to the bank.
