'nother pome

"If You're A Girl, Don't Buy 40 Pairs of Cheap Shoes--Buy 5 pairs of Good Shoes."
for Julie Dill

I overheard
these words
on my walk
to a talk
on Flan O'Connor.
I'm a goner (I thought)
if I don't write
(however slight)
a poem for Julie Dill.
Okay. I will.
I've always loved shoes,
sodomy, & booze.
Jules--thanks for the posse!
(But I'd have settled for kohlrabi.)
