We All Need Sparkle

Came across this poem that I wrote in May, 2020, near the beginning of the pandemic.

I need a manicure.

I need a pedicure.

My hair’s not too bad.

I trimmed some ends and pushed the sides behind my ears.

My shoulders are sore from leaning over the computer.

My quarantine world is getting smaller and smaller.

I shop online. Groceries arrive.

Books arrive. Same.

I wish I could order a museum, and have it delivered to my door.

Or maybe Van Gogh and Dali could walk in my door.

What a talk we would have!

And the next day I’ll invite Mozart.

He will play something bright for me.

I want to see something sparkle today.

I need sparkle.
