where there’s smoke

myra likes
her cigarettes
she should quit,
she knows,
black-1226643_960_720she gets it
but here’s what
they don’t get:
she isn’t ready yet
she’s quit before
she’ll quit again
you don’t have to
remind her
but if you need her
until then
and don’t know
where to find her
if you should
suddenly require her
where there’s smoke
there’s myra
