[PoemADay] No. 5 (although this should be No. 18)

I am the biggest slacker in the world. Thankfully, I'll just be minding one library as of next Monday. And maybe my thighs will recover from the AIDS walk NY last Sunday. Fresh from my crazy mind (and having read the Wikipedia entry for glitter (I was curious as to what it was made of):

No. 5 [all that glitters...]
my stupid heart hurts

the part of me that wants to hear you say: stop! wait! I made a mistake

needs to die
like ...
right now

because your words are a dime a dozen
cheap and shiny

I thought you were gold, but you were just glitter

just glitter
reflecting light in a sparkling spectrum
