    oh, i get it. smoke....cigarette. THIS ONE is not too complicated for me, though i do wonder if there is a Felis catus among us, or if the 'feline' is only Sally!

    i think i too would close MY eyes if a burning stick were hanging out of my mouth!

    i liked fingers and lingering so near one another. :) bri (Report) Reply

    Nice piece Sally. The style reminds me a little of a poem by D.H. Lawrence called 'Piano' - have you read it? (Report) Reply
