Two Poems


by A. J. Huffman







Swimming in Bubbles



Silken globes en[d]-

compassing me.  Light

Flowing.  Formless.  Robing

both delicate and dissipating.

Shiny slimy skin.  Less

wonder.  More rubbing.

Cue the wind.

(And the wine.)

This whitened world

of translucent faith sounds[:]

off in silence.


Look closer.

See elucivity.

Exploding in myriad

monosyllabic pops!











The Flowers of Untimely Differentiation



The crow withers

in the nestless underbrush.

His compassion


As a dream

where he is running backwards.

Through the house

of smoked imagination.


To the violets


silent epitaphs.

For the ghosts

of ancient gods.
