 inspired by, well, you can probably guess what inspired this one.


If this blister pops

while I’m wearing shoes

my sock is going to be a mess.

Big toe,

Left foot.

Big blister.

Still walking,

Still running.

The blister grows bigger,

thriving on the pressure.

Flirting with the possibility of a 

painful, messy disaster,

And wondering,

Is this blister a metaphor for life?
