"what she said, 'i smoke as i'm hoping for an early death, and i need to cling to something' it's what she said..."--smiths

for a friend's suggestion


so what's the difference,
my skin is bad anyway
so i'll light up again
still looking young beyond
these years
(for a while,
until these graces fail me,
and i'm just the same as

for it hurts to look, sometimes,
and this cloud does mask
the discomfort in my path
and put you further out of sight:
i'm blindsided,
nearsighted
at the opposite end of that bar
again...
