Ode to Green Mary Janes

 

When I saw the beautiful
emerald green Mary Janes,
my heart stopped
for a moment
to savor
their luscious
elegance,
curving heels
smartly turned
like the hips
of a glamorous
movie star,
their classic
tapered toes
topped with
signature T-straps.

Glowing green leather,
buttery soft,
evidence
of the richly crafted
elegance   
of a fashion world
that had until now
eluded
ordinary me,
those shoes
were a siren call.

Irresistible.
