A dying glitter God 

Did most of the glitter 
blind your eyes 
as you tried to dig for gold 
with your silver spoon?  
Your promises are impossible  
as if we are traveling to Heaven 
through an eye of a needle 
in a camel’s eye— 
Your initial charm  
is mildly toxic as tangerine oxygen; 
while buried in pink Himalayan salt blocks, 
did you feel God yet? 
Or did all your promises 
fall by the wayside, 
as you sweated your songs out, 
trying to make things happen?
