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.
