You have shine, and it’s not loud and sparkly and plastic
you have shine, and you know it, you work at it diligently
and it’s important work and relevant work
but it’s not loud and sparkly and plastic
you have shine that is quiet and dull and organic.
We cannot dazzle the myopic who, curiously, when
wearing their glasses can see the fireworks
yet cannot see the one
on the ground, the one who is
making them happen.
I see You.
