Edie

The smoke rises against the rusty windowsill.
The cigarette between her fingers
As her left hand runs through her silver-sprayed hair
Her legs shaking anxiously, waiting.

The cigarette between her fingers
Ashes falling, piling upon the hardwood floor.
Her legs shaking anxiously, waiting
Between the time her eyelashes graze the tops of her cheeks

Ashes falling, piling upon the hardwood floor
Her body, slowly disintegrating
Between the time her eyelashes graze the tops of her cheeks
This pain- her thoughts- it will be over soon.

Her body, slowly disintegrating
As she stares at the camera
This pain- her thoughts- it will be over soon
“Be yourself”, he says.

As she stares at the camera
Her face, her life reflected through the lens
“Be yourself”, he says
She is already lost.
