"Not A Fairy-Tale Shoe'

I could spend hours,
wearing you and
drawing on you,
carefully lacing you up
every morning.
I run through tires shreds,
to make you look grungy,
and I spend hours cleaning you
to look brand new.
You go through so many
identities, just in one week.
Graffiti
Shoe-box new.
Lyrics hastily scribbled in Sharpie.

When I get home from school,
I carefully un-lace you,
place you back on the shelf,
and wait for more adventures,

until tomorrow.
