Dry Cough

 

Smoking, Cigarette, Smoke, Unhealthy, Cigar, Addiction

Charcoal lungs

be-

longs

on another’s

grave

splitting spliffs

like decalcified pine bones

but the nausea overwhelms

and I rock to the breeze on my back porch

the cold shearing years

off my life,

carbon monoxide

turning my marrow brown
