A Doormat

A Doormat

Karyn Indursky


Give me bunny ears
before you pull through
your loop and pull
tightly to make my
pretty bows stay in
place before you automatically
tie me in your
double knot upon muddied
sneakers for your ultimate
convenience of using me
in an accompanying way
instead of always being
a doormat.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

It's funny in a twisted way when a person learns to be a knotted shoelace for an allowance of going with the user instead just being stomped on a doormat.
