In Doubt’s Boots metaphor rotates and becomes metonymy that moves, making for the unknown. The poem turns “abstract” language — seen through, then as suspect, by the overlooking image — into deliberate effrontery. Conventional narrative breaks out, then breaks off—and in the shadows language heads out everywhere.
