Favorite Quote:
"You must not ever stop being whimsical. And you must not, ever, give anyone else the responsibility for your life."

Smoke clears

Above thick shoulders

A pack of lips askew from desire

Words lacking interest stream

To darker corners

Rarely known

The author's comments:

When I wrote this poem, I really wanted to illustrate the flippant way teens of this generation address drugs and smoking. I also really wanted to highlight the lack of real, meaningful conversation in today's high-partying, low interest culture.
