Shards of Glass: Poetry

She reinvents Herself
into shards of glass
that don’t fit together

So when She walks,
She clanks and shimmers
and makes the sparkling noise
that makes no sense
to conformist ears

All the while,
She thinks to Herself
that the Makers of this Journey
didn't anticipate someone like Her

Because if They did,
They'd realize She wears a size 10 shoe
and stop making Her live in a size 6 world.
