In a Catastrophic Room. Beyond Despair.

By A.J. Huffman

I lost myself.

So completely

in his kiss.

My mouth.

And the not uncomfortable pressure

of his teeth

against my throat.

That I forgot to close

the blinds.

Until, too late,

I saw the sun.


Like the steam

form his back.

And my fingers

began to whiten

and crack . . .
