two words you don’t often find together.
how could i pass this up?
whoever named this is brilliant
it’s sure to bring a little sparkle to my home
la casita pacifica was just waiting for this
and didn’t even know it.
“I could see myself as a glitter hippie.”
i went to the u of m dermo clinic
for my annual skin checkup
just how thorough they were
when 3 different docs
checked me out.
the first one asked,
“did you know that you have some glitter stuck to your back?’
the second one asked,
“how did you get glitter in your hair?”
and finally, the third, the resident doc asked,
“did you know that you have glitter on your feet?”
i think they all imagined that i’d been to a wild party
or secretly am a dancer as my second job
i really couldn’t attribute it to working with the kinders
now that it’s summer break.
i told all of them that i wasn’t really surprised
that it’s always on me somewhere
thanked them for letting me know
and for another clean bill of health.
i think it lightened things up a bit in their clinic.
“i must bridge the gap
between adolescent glitter and mature glow.”

after spending weeks
immersed in the world of fairy and folk tales
the fairy tea party
with magic apple tea, served in tiny teacups
fairy bread with sprinkles, unicorn cookies,
giant strawberries, and sparkly cupcakes
all served on real china
ready to be discovered
by the kinder fairy -folk
upon their return from the tower.
“fairies glitter my heart with giggles.”
(yet another underpaid re-enactor)
when at the salon recently
my stylist was combing out my hair and asked:
“why do you have glitter in your hair?”
now, there are many possible scenarios
some more accepted than others
but i suppose in my case
it most likely has to do with
a kindy teacher
a creator of mixed-media collage art
a fan of glitter
and i see
that a pattern
has begun to emerge
when family and friends and colleagues
and even my cat
quite often have glitter on them
after spending time with me
and my grandson mentions
that he always finds glitter stuck to him
after we’ve been hanging out together
and people sometimes
brush glitter off of their legs
after getting out of my car
some people leave footprints
some people leave glitter
and that’s how you know
they’ve been there.
“when you’re around me, you’re going to get glitter on you.”

just a dash of
glitter in my coffee.
freedom lies in being bold.
