Never Wear High Heels

Except once, when you’re twenty,
and the world pulses
in time with your heart
and all lead singers
have names like Danny
and are too cute for words,
and maybe, if you wear
those red spikes and
that red dress
and catch a little buzz
you’ll dance into
such a groove
that the world will
fall in love with you.
