the signs

what did you used to smoke?

she asked

her own cigarette curling blue wisps

from a tiny silver tin ashtray

Camels I said back

she motioned the barkeep over

got any Camels?

in the machine he pointed

y’need change?

she was off her stool & at the machine

in seconds

oh the signs were there

here she offered on her way back

threw the pack at me

can you get the drinks in?

I need a pee

& after three years off

I was back on the nicotine ride

the signs were there

but I wasn’t listening

just wondering where else

she was gonna take me

would I be able

to hold on
