My Shoe

At times I get the squeaky wheel shopping cart. 

I don’t always know right away. 

Then I do. 

People snicker when I wobble past. 

They snicker at my wobble. 

I could go back and get another. 

But I don’t. 

When it’s my shoe that squeaks? 

It’s usually only one. 

I can’t get another. 

It’s my shoe. 

My left shoe. 

My left shoe squeaks.
