I got them through Amazon - these are the closest I could find: http://www.amazon.com/Military-Combat-Fold-over-Zipper-blackpu/dp/B00E3PKYHM/ref=sr_1_9?s=shoes&ie=UTF8&qid=1386536266&sr=1-9&keywords=plaid+fold+over+boots
There is a stinkbug trapped
on my windowsill.
His triangular body, tiny legs, and beady eyes
are difficult to miss as he scurries about,
One side of this fortress’s wall
is built of solid glass,
entirely impenetrable for this
On the other side rises a thin, black screen,
preventing flight and escape.
Yet its small cutout holes tease of what the
cool breeze feels like upon the skin;
what the sounds mean for a desperate ear;
what freedom tastes like on the tip of the tongue;
the border between life and death.
In a panic he paces in circles,
round and round like a madman.
This tense moment speaks in a tongue
my heart already knows.
So, for the small stinkbug, I open this trapdoor.
Away he goes, jetting towards distance memories.
who will open this trapdoor for me?
