Woman, Smoking


Standing by the trunk of her car,

Wearing jeans and a grey T-shirt,

Smoking a long, white cigarette,

Thinking of nothing in particular,

The woman offended me.


What a waste,

This standing by the trunk of her car,

What an affront,

These jeans and grey T-shirt,

What a deep insult to all reason,

This smokng of a long, white cigarette.
