Watery Ashtray - Poem by O Anna Niemus

For a while he
had a watery
ashtray
that no cigarette embers
get away
.. or go astray

He went to no smoking
meetings
where some had used the
patch..
some self hypnosis tapes
and others had grdually
each day reduced the cigarettes
they allowed themselves.

Now he was cigarette free.
He could climb steps without
pausing to breathe.
