For too Long
By Kayla Fontaine

I won't tolerate snowfall in Spring,
Christmas carols past New Years,
or house guests for more than two weeks

for there is only so long spent
standing in a cloud of tobacco
before a mind becomes it.

A cloud is not able bodied
only capable
of holding up the air.

A cloud is not able minded,
only used
in figures of speech.

Clouded judgment
Cloudy eye sight
In a fog

Do not stand
in a patch of secondhand smoke
for too long.
