Cigarettes

Today

(like everyday)

I took

the scythe

and placed it between

my lips.

 

I looked away

from my reflection

and turned to see

the Reaper

with his hand aloft

and his blade gone.

 

I smiled.

 

I took the blade

back from my mouth

and returned it

to its rightful owner.

 

How I long for that blade between my teeth,

the power of life and death

just a movement away.
