DEPRESSED ASTHMATIC

She waves her cigarette as she talks
Wafts of smoke framing her grin like a wreath
Burning paper and ashy debris and spite
choking throat; warning on label not heeded.
The truth is I cannot breathe; neither your air
Nor your ambience is bearable.
A smoke screen separates us, I’m sorry—
I can’t inhale your space nor your advice.

This poem is included in The Sophomore Year Experience poetry compilation.
