dancing/

it is a
dance with death
i told people
was my reason
for smoking.

they laughed,
already written off
a rock n roll
suicide by
eighteen

scratch him off
the deadpool --
he's a goner
for sure.
"most likely
to die
before
ten years
gone by..."

i miss my cigarettes
i will not lie
death and i
used to make
great dance partners
and i miss how her
hands used to
hang on my hips
during those
slow slow songs
