In the Scent of Dreams

by A.J. Huffman

I dance on tireless toes, spinning,
a ballerina of wind and ghostly touch.
I am air, light
and [on] point(e).
I am princess of the pink chasm
of inebriated thought. I know nothing
and everything. I see what I feel, what
I inhale. I exhale doubt. I watch it
float to the ceiling dissolve into fog
and shadows. I blink at them with my third
eye, fan them away with invisible butterfly wings.
