Sitting, or rather standin, by the concrete wall, looking at that ashtray thinking " damn that cig looks fine"... not that I smoke. The swirling, toxic mast of smoke and stench of decay sucks the life out of your everdying lungs. But the smell of fresh tobbaco, with the pundgent, fragrant aroma of earth.., ....leaves, ......dirt, ....ground together with blueberries and mellow mollasses.....Damn!... why does the wind keep blowing, brushing the leaves into my hair, and away my new silent obsession....it comes to me then.. how live in essence is like a Cig.first it's new...sweat .....fragrant..., then you light it, give it birth, and it gives off noxious fumes ... deadly to most.. oddly pleasurable to others .. it runs on and on.. burning.. .living its life.... then it dies down... becoming an ancient ember .... then, sadly, it dies, like all things.. leaving only the butt behind for the silent memories and ash for the wind to blow away.... I wish the wind would stop blowing .
