Naked with Socks On

By Martin Ladekarl


Somehow being naked with socks on feels

Like a stranger saying how much you’ve grown

Out of place, your parents’ dinner party

Past those who brought semi-cheap wine as a gift


The key to wearing socks while being naked is:

acceptance

You’re here now

Might as well enjoy it

Slide around


Marble floors feel smoother when you’re naked with socks

Don’t believe me?

Prove me wrong.

If you get a running start

you might even be able to slip into a pair of shoes
