Glitter is powerful beyond measure
as evidenced in the fact that it
can destroy social norms & straight lives with a single sprinkle.
& provides instant protection against boredom, curses, & squares.
Glitter is a mercurial messenger
It speaks worlds, while never saying a word
Glitter announces with flare that you live a clownish yet brilliant life;
that you are edgily poetic.
The harbinger of a party,
it lets you know something good is going on here or has gone on here
or that your straight friend has a wild hair you have yet to encounter
(you will know when you find shards on their bathroom floor. Someone is gayer than you think!)
Glitter is Dangerous!
Best friends with glue,
the sparkle is an odorless (read: harmless to your scent-sensitive friend)
yet potent poison, toxic to mundanity & muggles.
As a bonus, it is super effective in killing slugs plaguing your garden!
Don't be fooled by its beauty. It is capital "D" Deadly to the world order.
(see previous comment about slugs. There is a lot of potential for weapon development. Glitter bomb, anyone?)
Glitter is effervescent beauty
the most beautiful thing in the world
reflective, like light on water
bringing joy, fun, & delight as it
Glitter is the anarchist of the craft world
it refuses to follow your rules.
playful & often unexpected, it is uncontrollable, & nonconsensual.
it gets everywhere, especially where you don't want it
drifting in piles in the corner of your room, inhabiting your carpet, where it reproduces.
Once I dumped my Doc Marten & at least three tablespoons of glitter spawn fell out!
Strength! Glitter can wedge itself anywhere! Attach to anything!
You have lessons to learn about tenacity & stick-to-it-ness from glitter, my friend!
Glitter can hide in plain sight.
Highly & powerfully conspicuous,
yet when it turns on edge it goes invisible,
it lets the world know you are more than they can see:
who IS that beglittered genderqueer???
Glitter is radical resistance in a dull world
it generously gives you glam & glamour
the practice of adorning like a perfect (drag) queen
irreverent & unsurpassable
Queer as in fuck you.
Glitter is magick.
minuscule altars in piles of woodland duff,
eye-catching, bedazzling, & enchanting
creating illusory spectacles.
Glitter can time-travel
it touches your little kid heart & allows you to access your innocence
makes you a virgin again, & again, & again!
Every time you put on glitter, it's like the very first time.
Glitter is healing
Did you know that it has many mysterious & ancient healing properties (this statement has yet to be evaluated by the FDA.)
Excellent at easing the scars of trans bodies.
But wait, there's more!
Since it can make an instant rock star of anyone, it's especially good for treating social anxiety & queer awkwardness.
Also, it fills soul-holes with ease.
Glitter is the repository of queer memory
It is sentimental & sappy, possessive as a teenage boyfriend
glitter leaves a trace
reminding us everyday of our queer magick & power
it puts us in direct contact with our ancestors with just the tiniest spritz.
Glitter is Top Secret
how does glitter get made??
Nobody knows for sure!
Kind of like queers! Where do we come from? Unknown!
But queers & glitter are clearly a blessing from the heavens!
Glitter is Salvation
Reckless & unbuttoned
besmirching, shiny, delightful
An agent provocateur, who is an unpredictable annoyance to those most needing disruption.
Glitter Saves, yawl!
