Don Matthews on A pandemic is on the horizon far worse than the coronavirus (8 hours ago)
M.C. Newberry on A pandemic is on the horizon far worse than the coronavirus (11 hours ago)
He lights his cigarette, I prepare to share it,
just so his lungs could see less tar.
He’s in a reflective mood; I can tell by the way
the flame emerged from his lighter
red and tenderly squirmed like a worm in a furnace.
He holds my gaze as the flame faints back in its tank
drags on the cigarette, slowly tilts his head back.
I ever tell you the story about the mango?
