Two Poems by A.J. Huffman

Seeing Through the Eyes of a Butterfly

There is a touch for me.
Behind the thin metal
of your blue mask.
There is a dance.
A spark.
A flashing circuit
to terminate control.

I can feel it.
Through the velvet wall
of your shoulder
turning again
to block my light.


A Barbie Under Glass

You made me beautiful.
A perfect red-lipped Eve.
And unknowing
that I needed you
for anatomical completion.

Your hands turned me.
Stiff and plastic
in the dark.
In a show of respect.
For you.
My God.

Then you took me.
From your perch.
And dropped me
in a fire-side paradise.
A crystal coffin.
Cold and brittle.
to crack
at your touch.
