Forgoing Feathers

by A.J. Huffman

Pickles and glitter crunch.  My eyes,
sanely soft (the glowing is tasteful
ly toxic) in the moon.  Light falls
on salted kisses.  Too tight[ly strung]
together.  We are a visual meal.
Viscous and vital.  And blatantly bold
in our organic alchemy.  We shift
and shatter.  Re-forming layers:
in rock and bone.  We break
boundaries with our fingers.  And feeling
the aurorial edges (soft, what colors
lead the f[l]ight), we underestimate
only the flow.  Of information.
And informal misogynistic mind
