Inside the Shadows of Open
by A.J. Huffman
Doorways are harder to capture. You
chase away your own tale, stepping through
the darkened motion. That is not
your reflection you see. Scatter
that idea[l] before the sun
you. Back to your corner
Maybe/maybe not . . . Dream
walking and sleep waking are two sides
to the same possibility: Denial.
me, that is more than the river you paid
at the gate.
