CIGARETTE SMOKE – Cigarette smoke. Hint of a smile. Again, smoke, light turns from my lips, every night a few minutes, from his balcony, from my window. Spire read, bloom with a smile, and does not know my voice and I do not know his. Alone, through the coils of smoke his eyes I like, he likes my eyes. Every evening a few minutes, a greeting of coils of smoke, graceful lightness of gesture, silent point of high fire on the sleeping courtyard, and nothing more. Thus, while at the lamp the work waits, a few minutes every evening for a few evenings, light turns, light turns.
