we are told
to define
who we are
to show that
we stand out-

we are told
to shine.

here is who i am.

i am a mirage.

i am a shape-shifter
a Harry Houdini
a who
will i be

i am red
and blue
and green
and all of the
colors of the

i am a

i spinning
under flashing strobe lights
i am singing

i am crying,
i am breaking,
i am falling.

i am shining.
