Bourbon Man

he was leather..
smoke and bourbon..
smooth…cool..

sweetly addictive..

WAVERING SHADOW

In the stillness of morning
hangs fog like smoke veils
her waiting in the street

I watch my window
wavering shadow
announcing death of a song

Reconception

They huddled in small groups
Cigarette smoke in the drizzle and
Drip of life
Agitated, cursing their addictions
A fingertip on hope

Catch and Release

I watch as silence pulls him in
the slow draw of a cigarette
the taste of solitude
lingering in a moments breath
an exhale of smoke in the wind
