A Dream of Sudden Death

By A.J. Huffman

She wrapped herself

only in his sweater.

And stepped to the edge

of the door

she knew he left unlocked.


And with her eyes closed

she took a breath.

Pushing through the darkness.

In hopes of finding

the blue wall

of sky

that would carry her

through his arms.
