Cigarette Smoke

 

Only the lightbulb is detached,

Illuminated by some other wire

Fleeing from the room,

From the trap of eyes,

Of the congregation of viewers

With cigarettes mending their lips.

Their visions are exchanged,

Unnoticed during the infra-red movie.

They inhale their smoke,

Their motions are unique.

The smoke coats their dry voiceless throats,

As images form cataracts across their eyes.

The pleasure principle

Expels light to their motionless flesh,

To leave catatonic shadows,

Hunched in armchairs.
