A.J. Huffman… Two Glasses


Two Glasses

wait, half-full. One takes red,
the other white. Hands descend
from opposite ends. One hiding
nerves, the other signs of ring.
Rising, they make a connection.
Clink. Individual perception
translates whether it is more
or less than testimonial toast
to a moment’s union.

  1. A brilliantly executed poem from A.J.Huffman yet naturally interpretive vision of our
    common ways to voice our boundaries,actions and fixations and to make a poignant connection by human impressions through our gritty, witty and integral speech.
