I wish I could make a poem
that sparkled like colored glass,
Words gleaming in cobalt, amber, ruby and emerald,
each word iridescent and replete with meaningless beauty,
and when people read my creation,
their replies would be equally meaningless ooh's and ah's.
It would blaze across their retinas,
imbed itself as shards into their minds
and color their days with pointless splendor.
