for M.L.R.

on her ass,
sitting on the grass

legs crossed,
sucking in, sucking on,
sucking down her cigarette

until all that was left,
butt to throw away

an addict,
after she was done
feeding, satisfying
fierce craving

could again join
her daughter and me

pretend to be-
suggest that she was

ever so human
ever so normal

until she was again
sick for nicotine
sick for cigarette smoke

sick for a cigarette
sick for a cancer stick
