The Old Pair

Old slippers, comfortable, shuffling along
Each on the opposite foot
Joined in significance, mirrored, secure
Twined at invisible root

Idling in darkness or warm by the fire
Matching in looks and direction
Seeming the same but with different slant
Seeking a rhythmic perfection

Never more blissful than laid side by side
Though they oft pass unrequited
Paired for a purpose they just have to trust
Theirs is a journey united
