English: Stiletto heels

Stiletto heels (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

The pounding on the pavement
behind her
was what she hated the most;
That tocktocktocktock sound
terrified her,
pushed her over the edge, almost.

As soon as she stepped aside for one,
there was another to come:
Miss stroppy stropstropstropstrop
on high-heel dare
rushing to get past going nowhere.

She shuffled along gazing at windows.
She was only going to the store to get some milk –
There was no need to push.
