A Poem by recantichize

while staring out the yellow window,
making up a past to complement
my future, which is already written,
the smoke that stings my eyes lets me know
that i have at least trapped some of the present worries
in the filter of another cigarette.

There is something about cigarettes, that's why they ban the stuff. Lovely write

Intriguing take on time and cigarette smoking--two things not often linked, unless one asserts that the latter subtracts from the former.
This piece has both style and substance; was more than worthy of the read.
Impressive work, r!

The shortness of the piece lends it power and the feeling is clear. Smoking a cigarette is worth a thousand words. Thank you.

This is really good. I'm not a smoker myself but really appreciate the thought that worries can be trapped during a few puffs. Loved it.

Oh, if I could only trap worries in the filter of a cigarette, I would be the happiest person in the world...I smoke like a chimney, you see :)
