A.J. Huffman Poetry

High Noon

comfort is an attitude
and everyone is trying the same thing
the ice queen does it gently
triple zero
independence makes her less desirable
about face
personality injection
a great way to begin
you’ve chosen the evil
                                    a body at ease
cover your face
a-pluses are guaranteed
Exotic Evenings

how far will you go
runway choices celebrate the dawn
those who can’t speak chill a martini glass
true confessions
no streaks  no smudges
the postman always rings twice

True Illusions

do i look like public enemy number one
change your eye color
now shape it wet
keep it touchable
what gives you the power
acid face peels
too many politicians
your score
                  designer loyalty
only nature could inspire so perfect a gift
