Fragments of Divulged
By AJ Huffman

Time can recall any dream,
shift its intensity until it flashes
like a star, echoes like an absence.

Superstition slithers, a snake lying
in my ear, whispering
lean forward until I fall
face-first into common mortality.

Darkness is a good wound
that can dislocate
desperation. Listening to myself
tick, I wait for the welcoming
shell of solitude to descend.
