Skin Head Boots

Skin Head Boots

A Poem by Einstein Noodle



I love my boots;

so black ..........ten inch laced

 funny it is ..

I bought them at WalMart for
Forty-nine ninety five a

price i will afford

i love my boots
my skin head boots

When i lace them 

farther up i
feel 
the steel 
in the toes 
rise up

rise up to my brain 

my

skin head brain

I think a lot with those toes



funny thing

how black they are.

Hello, Einstein! :)
Great write, it really got me thinking.
There are adults who haven't learned to work through their fears and frustrations. Instead, they live with those emotions, and strangely find them comforting. These people have trouble connecting with others and their relationships are always abusive. These people want to place blame and punish others because it is what they know. Their families and society failed to guide them to adulthood. They abuse because they want to be abused.
In a healthy society these people would be rarities, seen for what they are and cared for. They wouldn't be out finding like-minds and "nurturing" new generations. 
Fabian mentioned in his review, "There is a crack in everything God has made." there are cracks in man made things as well. We've become fascinated by tv stories and new tech, so proud of our cars and homes, so stylized and branded and enthralled and rigid with anticipation that we've become the cracks in our society, our numb society. And, those are our children who will be lacing up their boots. 
Look at their willfulness, what could have been greatness had a parent been understanding and nurturing instead of distracted or abusive, or had a neighbor or teacher cared. What precious minds have we ignored?  

We will, as a society, learn to forgive and connect, and help these people; or we will keep spanking "children" for mismanaging their emotions; and feigning shock to match our facades of innocence.
Ourselves, our families, our society, our planet, these things matter most.

Oh! I have many things that I feel they are like only made for me, and that they become a part of me, if another person wear them or have them it's not the same as when they are with me :)

A mind that can only come up with violence as an answer has not lived. It needs something to spark it in a new direction, such a difficult subject, and you presented it so simply in this poem. Thank you for the thought provoking read, I hope it reaches minds far and wide.

"There is a crack in everything God has made." Ralph Waldo Emerson/ "That's how the light gets in..." Leonard Cohen / If there were no poets to oppose brutality I fear the world might truly become uninhabitable. It is not that the poets feel things more strongly but they do present and represent the truth in a most desirable fashion. I remember as a child watching a KKK rally on the six o'clock news when an opposing protester drove a truck right into the midst of the group. He injured several before being arrested. I'll never forget my father's response. He said, "Well the fellow in the truck had the right idea. He just went about in the wrong way." We must do our thinking with open hearts and minds and not with boots and pick-up trucks. We might not change the world but perhaps we can influence enough hearts and minds to bring about that change. Hatred begets hatred and violence, violence...but maybe we can find the cracks to let in some light.

Interesting read. I read it a few times as there were play on phrases and underlying ideas that caught my eye. I like when they do that. ;). Nicely written.

Such boots become the man (or the woman) who wears them as the mentality of uniform takes over and encourages those who cannot think outside the box to be a 'skinhead and carry out the deeds ascribed to that particular tribe.'

I love how, in a relatively short space, you have made a powerful statement regarding the actions of people caught up in a web of hate. The image of the black boots in contrast to the skin heads way of thinking is subtle but brilliant. Thank you for sharing this insightful write!

there is such invulnerability here; so immune to being wounded or injured. People in my family have refused to speak to me just because of my politics....what happened to the fundamental nature of looking outside ourselves? that's why poetry is so absorbedly un-harmful and necessary in this impregnable world.....great poem my friend....dana
