Amidst the wavering night tide

 

A stone, cold silence caressed the air

 

 

 

No echo beyond an audible level,

 

 

Peace cradled the night

 

 

 

Underneath the crowing esophagus

 

Her acoustic guitar she strummed

 

As upon the pacifying vapor of a cigarette

 

Her lips fervently clasped

 

 

‘Twas a minor hint of nicotine

 

Born just of this woman's breath

 

As gently a waft of smoke

 

Waltzed across the horizon

 

Serenading the stars in slumber

 

 

And all night she'd sing songs

 

Speaking tales of great misfortune

 

Around a sacred fire of devotion

 

To spread love & peace

 

All across the valley
