i am a dying breed,
and there's no room for me
on any endangered species list.
when I go, this fire goes with me

publish all my deepest thoughts.
i'll be back at 7:52,
after sitting in the doldrums,
thinking about the beauty that is you.

i want to disappear into a past life,
but daddy makes it so hard to forget.
and I'm feeling so dispassionate
about this cigarette.
