Smoke Break

May 15, 2008
By Paula Joe Gerbig, Round Rock, TX

His cigarette burns
As the ashes of reality are dashed and forgotten.
The drag he inhales brings fantasy to life.
A living swirl of consumed smoke rises into the night
Disappearing as it despenses.
His job is irrelevant:
His bills,
His stress
Vanish.
The image of bliss is strengthened by each drag.
His quiet time.
Peaceful. Somber.
Ten minutes of nicotine pleasure.
Relaxation:
Smoke break.
