A woman is standing in a shoe shop... and has an epiphany of sorts. She finds herself wandering through her psyche as she grapples with the unresolved tensions of her sexual identity. Love, lust and the desire for security vie for dominance and the protagonist, known only as the Woman, must make her choice.

EXTRACT: I confess/I'm a terrible shopper/ You'll have to advise me/ I haven't a clue/ Don't get me wrong/ I'm no shrinking violet/ It's more of a matter of choosing/ Which one?/ How much?/ And will I regret this once I get home?/ You must see it all the time/ In your line of work./ People are like that/ Full of regrets/ So what do you think? Do they suit me?/ Should I go up half a size/ Or get rid of the heel?
