Understand walks:
shall trousers be symmetry?

Steps higgledypiggledy,
glides with barefoot feetshuffling.
Supersumptuous fun!

Beware walking in melancholy pajamas.

Bubblyjocular spindlelegs
work with delights
and in brisk zigzag.

Go gently tapping,
stifflegged pace to walk sideways,
tiptouch care.

Or dance as wonderwide horseplay!
Skipping highkickers,
’twas of play:
electric,
bluestreaked,
pure.
