A.J. Huffman - 1 poem

An Eclectic Torch

My mind is a dump.
will scraps of consciousness
and thoughts
partially discarded as tripe.
Feel their edges.
to fit together.
They are desperate
to build
an image
your eyes can believe in.
But the wind pushing them
is too mild.
They rise and fall.
Just short of complete.
I cannot breathe their belief.
That shade of relief
is too shallow.
So, damaged,
we both roll on.
Blindly bouncing
into and over
every mirror --
broken or otherwise --
to show us the way.
