glitter [poem]

we are
eyecatcher and
light-twister
a flicker of color at
the edge of sight
playing
both unseen and always seen
thing
contagious
chromatic crystals
made of
aluminum and tenacity
sticking
everywhere they’re wanted
and quite a few areas they’re
not
we are
soft shimmer and
surprise confetti
found in the strangest places
on hands and clothes
and faces
the stealthy sparkle
a stealer of the smallest light
and reminder that every touch has the potential
to leave something behind
like glitter
