The Lady in the Red Shoes

By saltyman65

Hinting at Secrets to frightening to face front forward:
……………………She walks the line carefully………………………..
 with… maniacaL candor that only the damaged  comprehends.       
With things she feels
            ~but~                                                                 audience,
only in the private wonder of Self.
One Red Shoe
                                                            As she Screeches with Delight!
                                                          “WATCH YOUR HEADS YOU IDIOTS!!!”
