A Girl Can Dream (Poem)

A girl can dream

of stepping out
on the High Road,

a flame in heels
that'll steel no beau's

heart. What laces
each ankle in place

she'll turn to take
his fancy and he,

blood pressure rising,
will let her lead and whirl.

This poem, which first appeared as part of the Image-ine series at the T.S. Poetry Press blog TweetSpeakPoetry, is inspired by Nicola Slattery's painting Red Shoes (acrylic on board), which may be seen in the Image-ine post and also here on the artist's Website.
