Would you make a pair for my rainbow feet?
One shoe for the foot of my native land
to walk up the nrupatunga betta.
And another for the vagabond foot
to wander cities with names and no names
now in a city of illusion
and then in another of hallucination.
I know of bow feet and bow legs
But rainbow feet…I don’t make
the shoemaker said.
And then it took me four rainbows and nine rains
to have the cordwainer understand my shoes.
He is working on my order.
