Who’s Shooooz?

A barefoot poet.

Why shooooz?

Once upon a time, a girl showed up to an open mic and asked to be added to the list. The host asked for her name. Tired of the process of saying her name, repeating her name, and then telling people how to spell it, she pointed at her bare feet and told him, “Put me down as shoes.”

She didn’t tell him how to spell it.
