Throw /'/em both in the wash. You can cleanse your soul much easier than your shoes.

How you been? I/'/ve missed your zany brain.

well they, those red shoes, are not dirty,
to me dear lady.
You can not wash your soul off,
and srub it clean, but I would
try and assist, the old dude
creepily said to himself in a
thought cloud, while seemingly
he just looked ordinary, what a heel of
a bloke, oh please, let him think
as long as he is not hurting anyone.
after all, they are all the same.
Never knowing why they are
all the same.

so anyway,
in 1918, there was this basic
American actress, her name was
Eleanor Boardman, and in
1918 she posed nude
as Rokeby Venus,
captured by a photographer
in a studio.

she was pure, and simple
and beauty beyond
through time

with all its flaws.
