Cigarette

Barista, Malviya Nagar, Delhi 2016

You take me in
between your fingers
To light me up
while I turn
And burn
myself into ashes

You put me
inside your mouth
and wet me with
your saliva
While I get drunk
In your saltiness

You suck and
blow me
to make those
infinite number of
concentric circles
While I lose myself
In conundrums of life

It’s not easy to forget me
I will be a lingering
Smell on your
Fingers
Long after I am gone
