Slipper, a poem by J.R. Solonche

It was a slip-up,
those glass slip-ons,

the translator’s error,
using the verre of glass

for the vair of fur,
but felicitous for her

whose feet fit such shoes
only true heroines could wear.


J.R. Solonche has five new books coming out in 2022: Coming To (Word Tech Communications/David Robert Books), It’s about Time (Deerbrook Editions), The Book of a Small Fisherman (Shanti Arts Press), The Dreams of the Gods (Adelaide Books), and Leda (Adelaide Books).
