Nicotine Fingers

Found this poem that I never never posted. It was written back in January. ” I did a funeral on Friday. One thing I noticed on a number of mourners was the nicotine stain on their fingers. So . . . 

I stand and witness

the nicotine sunrise on index fingers.

It blazes,

tells of the not passive participation

in the day that sets in death.
