Irony MAG

By Jennifer T., Street, MD

The shards of glass littered the cold, black asphalt
like sparkling stars strewn across the night sky.

Their brilliance catching the corner of my eye,
making me slow down, just to look at them a little longer.

In my awe of the sheer beauty of merely broken glass,
I couldn't help but think

How someone else's tragedy
could be so beautiful to me.

"She walks in beauty,
Like the night of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
Meet in her aspect and her eyes."
--Byron
