a stick of cigarette

I’ll stand under a lamp post
waiting for you to show up
wearing this old, worn-out jacket
trying to fight the breeze

the freezing breeze
that pierces through this jacket
a stick of cigarette

i kept waiting
that a silhoutte of you
will be see
i played with the flame
from my lighter
started by butane

i lit this stick of cigarette-

-and puffed smoke all around

like fog
resting on the humid air
i waited for you
and waited….
and waited…

i finished the stick
and threw it away

– and still i waited
for you to show up
another stick of cigarette….
