Do You See?

>"Love Story Between Composing" on SMOKE Site

>You reached
out for the days
of waiting, still-live
cigarette butt-ends
on the expectant
ashtray (the smitten
one) that the Urdu
poet of lilting
lines and starry
fantasies puffed
calling at you
with coiling capers:

Love Story Between Composing

I celebrate this first day of Spring by posting (also my 100th post!) my poem selected for “The Smoking Book“. The poem has appeared on this blog as a draft and I am hoping this will be the final version for inclusion in the SMOKE anthology from the small press, POETS WEAR PRADA, specializing in limited edition poetry chapbooks. Also, check out poems by Roxanne Hoffman, Joy Leftow, DubbleX, and Bernard Alain among others on the SMOKE website. Happy Spring!
