Poem - My Kitten Heels

An article in The New York Time Style Magazine got me thinking about kitten heels. The publication boldly proclaimed 'the retro style stakes a modern step forward'.

My Kitten Heels

How I love my kitten heels
the squat kin of towering tilt
I'll embrace the feline cleats
brought to earth for mortal feet

once thought old-fashion by the kids
now cool enough for a night out
or daytime fun instead of sneaks
snazzy fashion around the clock

60’s flashback with options
of pumps or slingbacks I could wear
perhaps the heel could be exposed
skin revealed with bit of height

a Tiffany breakfast still inspires
steal a million with this meow
Hepburn is my fashion idol
presenting chic that's come around

the playbook has all the styles
colors, fabrics, and the bows
paired with dress or roughed-up jeans
the more casual is best of all

not the wedge, I'll pass on that
stiletto rear is the preference
kitten heels are now my style
embracing comfort above the ground.
