Slippery Slope

walking down my coulee
i'm happy for the spikey footware
steve sent home with michael
for me to try out

but just past angie's driveway
i lose one of the slip ons
and i have to backtrack
and yank it over my boot
again i keep walking
when i lose the other
almost to the ski hill
and i think maybe
it would be easier
to just carry them
i walk a few feet
and i'm already missing
over ice rutted roads

so on i walk
and stop
and pick up
and put back on
and keep walking
