Sean Robinson

Converse

 

Try on my shoes so you know our difference.

They are large, aren’t they, and feel cold and agape.

Try to walk, you will feel heavy. Try to dance,

you will feel a fool. Tie the laces tight as they will go

and stand outside in the hardly raining.

 

I will sit here trying to squeeze your little white Converse

over my brisket feet. When you come back in

you will tell me stop it I am damaging your shoes. 

Sean is from London, lives in Leith, and has just completed an MFA at St Andrews. More at seanrobinson.weebly.com.
