Today I Shall Wear My Magical Alonissos Flip-Flops


S.R. Karfelt/The Glitter Globe




Today I shall wear
My magical Alonissos flip-flops


The ones that trod the ancient alleys
And gathered dust along old by-ways,
They've touched the floor of musty taxis
Along twisty-turning highways


Trodden cobble
Slid on marble
Tackled the stony beach hobble


They crossed the deck at sunset
Caressed the dock by moonlight
And danced among drunk seals
To skim the crystal water, more perfectly than heels


Soon enough the world will ice
And take this all from me,
But today I'll wear my flip-flops
That licked the salty sea
