A weekend’s worth of cigarette smoke.
In lungs as it was,
An empty yellow pack
on a cluttered coffee table;
an Indigenous effigy affixed on the front,
laying creased and crushed.
Dirty caked pealing fingers
Hangnail cuts a cloth uneven
Expensive wines stained flesh
Blood let late this summer that went
I spent two weeks in one night…
translucent green Seaweed
whole and Uncooked Quail Eggs
there they lay
of Expensive Fish.
Let’s not forget the numerous rounds of cloudy white sake.
Champagne flow pained frontal lobe.
Nights let grow, as days let wane.
Through campus- through school,
on legs that bend- shooting pain.
Feeling as crumpled paper; trashed.
Sprawled across the lawn in the grass,
People playing games as I move past,
A backpack fully packed, on back.
When: all of sudden preparation for another week began.
And I have to leave it at that.
Money does not matter.
