Carbon Monoxide (CO) Week 2: Carbon Cabrona

Smokeless inhales hurt.
I cough tar on my shirt.
As my black lungs breathe,
Shrilling exhales wheeze.

Falls me
Down to
My knees.

The nicotine cracks
My will.
My composure

I want 
I must 
Have this.

I sink
The brink
Of madness.

    My wife and I agreed to smoke only after sex. My lungs cleared up and she still gets a carton a week. I wonder if I should be worried. God Bless. Vince

    Physics and Chemistry are not for me! However, Poetry it is! "I sink/ Into/The brink/Of madness."....This last stanza is formidable! I like your writing, Hai Au. Ruben.
