30/30 for April 7th 

He is an unsuitable pair of shoes

the kind you long to wear
despite, no because of 
their shape, their style.
It isn’t painful at the time
you can stride confident,
scarcely noticing a pinch across the toes
slight burning around the heel
or on the ball of the foot.
But after 
you are red raw and blistered 
and even the softest pair of pumps 
cause hurt 
until the skin has had time to recover.
