Ben’s Rock

by A.J. Huffman

Silhouetted against a sea’s st[r]ained dawn,
this devil dares his signature stand.  In attempt
to deter this diminutive cliff
‘s calling to the sun?  Beveled
arms upend.  [A would-be conqueror]  You are
a modern-day Icarus.  You desire to fly
in reverse.  The wind holds
its breath, your form:
Only your shadow falls . . .

This is how energy is made.
