A Poem from the Editor, A.J. Huffman

Of Adverbs and Misguided Affairs

Reluctantly.  I am speaking
backwards (against myself).  You are
the embodied antonym for complacency,
compliancy and co-dependency.
And yet we play together so harmonically.
A symphony of sin and sun and silence
[laughing].  We are a communal
(of sorts).  An undecyphered language
locked in lethargy.  Hesitation seems to be
our Rosetta.  (Motion our only road block).
Statistically stasis should resolve
our burning [desire to resist].  Feelings
falter blindly between four hands and numerous
fingers pointlessly passing [nothing]
through nothing but layers and levels
of disillusioned dark.
