Ode to glitter glue

O Great Glitter Glue,


How you kiss sparkle & vibrance & joy

onto all that you embrace


How your companionship metamorphoses

a lonely canvas cocoon into galaxies of constellations


How you are unapologetically girly!

And simultaneously uncompromisingly Herculean—

You are glitter, yet you are glue too


For you gift interdependence to otherwise

uncoupled entities


For you uphold a bridge with bare hands

never letting go of that one you care for


O Great Glitter Glue,

The intersection point those self-proclaimed

mathematicians fail to notice

Accept this tribute from your admirers

Contrary to what society has led us to believe, femininity and strength are not mutually exclusive.

When people first meet me, they think I'm really shy, but by the time they get to know me they wonder how the illusion of shyness ever came around!

I loved this 🥰
