A beady eyed woman pointing with her chubby digits at my feet,
“You have the wrong socks on, one is red and one is green!”

I told her, “Ma’am, I don’t go according to colour,
I go according to thickness
and these two socks are the exact same thickness.”

She walked off
displeased,
not with me,
but
with her inadequacy
to think laterally,

I believe.
