I was pondering where my niche may be, today.

All this journaling and thinking has made me crave the cigarettes I gave up for good in my late twenties.  I’m sure that this is significant and means I should keep probing 😉


In imaginary smoke

I puff out all

The indignities.

 Woman smoking in band t-shirt

Part of me still insists

I look cool in these shades.


In my head, it’s purple dusk.

(Those sunglasses rendered useless).


Enigmatically I stand:

In a long coat,

Hair in a quiff.


Back here, in reality,

Another school day begins.
