INKTOBER 2020: Day 2. Wisp

She Let It Burn, But Didn’t Breathe It In

I don’t want to leave

She said, putting the cigarette between her lips.

She let me light it.

Then don’t, I said.

She let it burn, but didn’t breathe it in.

When the ashes reached her fingertips

She dropped it,

Ground the sparks into the pavement,

And walked away.
