‘All That Glistens’ (new poem)

An alliteration!

But seriously. This is why February is my least favorite month. Everything’s in flux, and things make or break or completely change within the span of a few hours. It’s a time of extreme change that makes you feel strange for saying the same, and I do not care for it.

All That Glistens
By Maggie McGinity

All that is gold does not glitter
But all that glistens now
Will thaw, refreeze, and liter
The sidewalks to lead you down

I know not feel of falling
I black: awake, on back.
I see the powder calling
To take me off my track

All that is gold does not glitter
But all that is water will
Nourish, yes, but second guess
Then linger for the kill.”

Quotes:

“I always chose the icicle: the weapon melts away.”
-“The Lovely Bones” by Alice Sebold

“You don’t really wanna stay, no
But you don’t really wanna go
You’re hot then you’re cold
You’re yes then you’re no
You’re in then you’re out
You’re up then you’re down”
-“Hot N Cold” by Katy Perry
