The Road to Firefly Road by A.J. Huffman

comes alive at sunset, glitters
like blinking neon, creates
a subtle strobing effect.  Time stops
to take a breather here, kicks its feet
up, smokes its pipe, reflects
on childhood memories of mason jars,
three holes punched into the lids
in hope of capturing and preserving
the flickering beauty of this dusky world
in the unforgiving light of day.
