Black Lungs and Liver Killers

We play games with our cigarette smoke
Making hearts and O’s
Just like the chain-smoking caterpillar
In Alice in Wonderland.
Laughing and choking
On our years of bad choices
Gasping for fresh air
With a smile on our faces, we live
So close to dying, we live
With a gift, unique
Realizing our masochistic ways.
