A.J. Huffman- A Poem

A Letter from Hell

I never asked you to save me.
Or build me a castle
made of glass.
And now you expect me
to polish your armor.
On my knees?
I am sorry.
You are mistaken.
You have mistaken
For something else.
A dream maybe.
All floating white and gold.
Just waiting for Mr. Right.
But I never wanted to be a princess.
Never wanted my edges curved
and matched to your own.
I don’t need a knight.
I don’t want a prince.
And horses --
white or not --
are hard on the ass.
