    The smoke climbs like the soul of a snake
    Swimming, in the invisible sand
    And soon dissipates, fades toward the ceiling
    Into the anxiety of this perennial air

    Throughout continuous drags and plumes
    I feel no better or release of pressure
    On the expanding lobes of my beating brain
    On the letting go of providence

    With every tap of ash I fear the end
    The stoic crush of its still-burning head
    Put out in the pit of other lifeless butts
    Extinguishing only a temporary pleasure

    And what is left? Stink, stain, skin discolour,
    Heavier breath and open conscience
    The deep distraction of a narrow foresight;
    One light of a flower blue in my convalescence

      As always, your imagery intrigues me. I had to think about the spelling of "buts". I settled on it being "butts".
    As "lifeless buts" though, it is interesting on its own in the sense of use in speech as an excuse.
