The Fashion Mistake of a Large Woman

It strains the seams,
pulling the material
beyond repair and

The jelly seeps
overboard like
survivors escaping
to safer shores.

The effort that she
must take, squeezing
those things where they
cannot fit, it is

an incredible, nay,
a Herculean feat.
And what’s the point?
They’re just shoes…
