Newly Colored Shoes

Newly Colored Shoes

A Poem by Michael G. Smith
"

...

"
The carousel
It goes round and round
With your one sided conversation
Faster and faster
Without sense it never stops
Till your words come back on you
With a pair of newly colored shoes

Thanks, that's quite a compliment.
What a funny concept! :D With a pair of newly coloured shoes... ;) And I rather like one-sided conversations... When it's the other person saying something long and meaningful, that is.

I would agree with you on that merit.
One sided conversations can be very awkward and yes go buy you some new shoes ;-)

We have a guy at work who goes on and on about his nonsense philosophy until it gets you dizzy enoug.. read more
Sounds like many a conversation I've been in where the other party talks and talks without asking a single question about you. For me I like surprise endings but I'm still puzzling the last line.

Based in a real person. His nonsense conversations get me so dizzy I throw up on his shoes.
Ah, talking to ourselves sometimes.... comes around full circle, where we are our own audience. I wonder, are the ears open to hear anyone else?

Based on a guy I work with none of his opinions make much sense to the point of laughter.
Yes, when all else fails, go shopping. I kid. I think it is helpful to remember that some people think out loud.

Some people hear only the sound of their own voice... Great poem, Mike!
