A poem by A.J. Huffman

The Sensation of Light


is like the soft petting of a hand
intent on delivering pleasure to skin
starving for warmth. This subtle
silken movement designed to generate
the slightest friction becomes a kiss
that could shatter glass. The explosion
that follows is a slow-motion montage
of erotic misery, not that it matters.
The falling, not the remaining,
pieces are the point.
