Poetry- "Litter"

“Litter”
by Jennifer Patino




We lie like litter.

Discarded dreams
stacked in piles
around us to
feel safe,

Bins of hopefulness
stuffed full of flow
spill out, 

Attempt escape.

We’ll die like glitter.

Free-falling flashes
dancing wildly
for everyone
to feel peace,

Hearts of selflessness
shining brilliantly forever,
give shout,

Sing again.
