What sticks to you like glitter?
What small thing gives you a smile in it unexpectedly glints at you from a tabletop, or child’s cheek?
What makes you groan with annoyance when dumped in a pile, hang hangs around for months only to bring a tear to your eye when you remember that sweet soul you miss?
Glitter, I often don’t like you, but many are the things you can teach me.
