Glitter

Afternoon shower of light
you loosen from the clouds,
spilling between my thighs—
oh it rains mirrors, bouncing
reflections, cosmic fragments
comet-dust, meteoric mica flakes
Tremble and pour forth, oh my earth
spinner oh my star shaker, oh my.

After the bang, the swirling subsides
pooling, coalescing in repose
your face dusted with diamonds.
