"I am a glorifier, not very high up

on the vocational chart, and I glorify everything I see,

everything I can think of.  I want ordinary men and women,

brushing their teeth, to feel the ocean in their mouth.

I am going to glorify the sink with toothpaste spat in it.

I am going to say it's a stretch of beach where the foam

rolls back and leaves little shells."

-Mary Ruefle, "Glory"
