Knowing is not enough; we must apply.

"Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right"
- Henry Ford

Oh boy do you sparkle
Blue as the sky
Glittering specs
Engross my eye
A dress so pretty only a princess would wear
That irksome cloak that envelops your sparkly inner layer
Ask you out -- no tuxedo would dare
Your sparkles gleam
Your material flows elegantly
Leaving all the tuxedos falling apart at their seams
Oh boy do you sparkle
As blue as the sky

I wrote the poem about my prom date's dress as an extension of her making it as if it were written by my tuxedo.

I love the mystery of this. Written as the dress and the tuxedos adds a crazy-awesome magic. Awesome!
