A. J. Huffman: Walking Trance

A. J. Huffman: Walking Trance

A Waking Trance.  For Two?
 

I miss your eyes
in the night.
The silent peace
of their closing.
Tucked.
Secretly
inside a whisper.
They leave
 a bare imprint.
Subconsciously re-assigned.
I consciously resign
to dream
them back into memory.
Each night
they emerge.
Another shape
another shade
another layer.
Soon the image will be soiled.
Again.
Faintly glittering.
An ephemeral altar.
 
For worship
or sacrifice?
Will remain
to be
(un)seen.
