How to Walk in High Heels

Step 1: Don’t fall.


Actually, if you fall, do it in style.

Slide into that embarrassment with a laugh

and make sure you’ve got no bruises

before looking to fix your pride.


Step 2: Don’t climb stairs.


Actually, yes! You can climb those stairs.

You can go as high as you want really.

Because who’s going to let an extra three inches

pull them to the ground?


Step 3: Don’t run.


Actually, run however much you want.

Because you have so many races to win

and a little feminine flair

is not a reason to be in last place.


Step 4: Don’t wear what doesn’t match your style.


… You know, maybe just don’t worry about it.

Wear those bright red stilettos

whether you’re six feet tall, wide,

short, female, male, gay, straight, sideways…


You know what?

Just wear whatever the hell you want.
