A.J. Huffman - 3 Poems

With Bare

feet crossed on dashboard,
resting.  My rhinestoned sunglasses
reflect the momentum, short-term
memories in the making.  Map flung to back
floor in rebellion and preference
for uncharted interaction.  Back-road mistakes
melting into mystical minefields, blasts
of beauty, untouched by anything but camera’s
flash.  Soundtrack of laughter and effortless
banter barrels through glass
half-rolled down, plays for the wind.

The Road to Yoga Road

is curved at impossible
angles.  Avenues dangle on one
leg, teeter, manage not
to fall into failure’s abyss.
Balancing the drive
for perfection with natural
peace of meditative silence, the form
shrinks, converges on sole point,
aligns itself with inner

Ice Cream Unplugged

Frozen tower of twisted
milk dissolves into photo-
negative lava flow.  Sticky
hands, elbows flick, drip,
short flight.  Away.
