    dotsmy cancerdots

    At one A.M. I light
    the long end of my cancer.
    As the smoke permeates
    the room with the smell
    of my contentment,
    I wait for the walking smile
    to bring more energy in a pot
    and turn back to my
    leather bound fantasy.

    I hear the backdrop beat
    of too many souls converging
    and conversing about the mundane
    and just to spite them,
    I think deep thoughts.

    I kill myself with one more drag.
    I look at the face of eternity,
    it tells me the moon will soon leave,
    and the sun to take its place.
    it lets me know Iam one day older
    and that I need dreams to fil my head
    in subconsious bliss.

    the walking smile returns
    with the white slip of my debt
    and refills my now bottomed out
    bottomless cup.
    I disturb it once with my lips
    and leave my tip for the night
    (don't get caught in the rain)
    I walk out into the musty morning
    and drive home feeling complete
    that I have had my cancer and blackend teeth.

      I get a great feeling of dry humor and a little nostalgia. I don't smoke but I have friends who do so I kinda get the mood behind it.

    A great piece overall. It flows really well and tells a great story.

      This was great and kinda reminded me of some topics I would write about. I may be reading too far into it but I saw some social commentary in there that tickled me. Like the part describing the typical crap the patrons were "discussing" and how you fell into deep thought out of spite. That was classic. The only thing I would suggest is that there are a couple minor spelling errors that appear to be typos not words you didn't know how to spell. Much like my comment I'm sure! lol. Anyway....I'm impressed.

    Take care

      I love this peice. Sounds like you are are kindred spirits. I have spent many an hour at a denny's in Anchorage endulging in my cancer and blacked teeth as well. I love this piece! I love the imagry here, the use of description. The only thing I can see is in the last stanza, the first word is missing a capital T. Other than that, it is wonderful. Great job!

      Well done well paced piece. I just moved from Seattle and miss my depressive cynical bar and coffee shop world, but I went too far down the rabbit's [censored] and had to get out. This poem definately surfaces the nostalgia though. Great job in eliciting feelings.

      This is really good. I love the wording and descriptions. It kind of has a sad lonliness to it. I guess I'm driving toward cancer and blackened teeth too. Oh boyy. Anywho, there is nothing I don't like about this. Good luck with everything. Great job
