Last night

I saw your image

relaxing in the green

suede chair

legs crossed

barefoot shaking

cigarette in right hand

drink in left-no ice

blue jeans-regular fit

dark jaw tightened

brown eyes fixed

and thin lips parted

by smoke escaping

a ghostly kiss.

    It’s brilliant how you were able to vividly describe someone to us with so little words. Every little detail really adds to your poem in such a phenomenal way!

    I picture a loved one who was very comfortable when relaxing in the manner in which you described. Another great work!

    This is such a cool piece! As I read this, I felt as though I was getting a glimpse at the person too. Nice!
