Day 3: Lobject's Comfortable Shoes

Fifty pounds proved I was pregnant for most of 2012
in my stomach and ankles mostly until the last weeks
Avoid salt and elevate those feet and don’t walk or lift
or stand too long and whatever you do get comfortable
shoes so the skin pooling in unnatural shapes isn’t
pushed out the top, floppy. Eleven hours on a Tuesday
gave in to Shoe Mart—$9.99 for a pair should have
been two sizes too big, ugly black sweater on my toes,
temporary fix until Friday off my feet for a few days
turned four months and home from the hospital
and boy was I ever glad for those comfortable shoes.
