Half A Shoe

other half

like half a shoe I guess
something that gets
between you and terra firma
but not especially
and you don’t feel much better for it 

like saying reflectively
and with due respect for the analogy
these are mores
we’re all familiar with
so let it be

but it confuses;
if we’re all that witless it follows
eventually like half an idea
that the shoe’s other half
isn’t there to make a difference
