smoking cigarettes
to get me past the blues
is probably
the quickest route to death
(or cancer, at the least)

inhale exhale have another
in madrid
you can smoke

bars/your room/your bed
not the metro
not the hair salon or the bank

but still.

i resist lighting up
while i vid skype with my mother
just because
i don't want her
to worry even more
that her only daughter
far away
isn't only sad
she's also making
terrible choices

why do we do the things we do when we know we shouldn't?

this poem is terrible
smoking is terrible
a terrible poem about terrible smoking

i want more.
