one less

he lit another
cigarette
off the corpse
of the last
letting out a cloud
of blue smoke
that danced
in the cool rainy air
followed by
a tremendous cough
that rattled
like thunder
and looked me
in the eye
as he spat
onto the wet concrete
and said:

each one of these
is a fuck
i don’t have
to give

i just nodded
finding no fault in
his logic
as i continued on
into my own
darkness
