Bourbon Man

he was leather..
smoke and bourbon..
an illusion..
sweetly addictive..
he made me need him..

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

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
