Smoke

I've always been hypnotized by smoke, how it curls and hangs floating, the only bare remains of fleeting thoughts. The scent raises nostalgia from thin air. My sweet grandmother in her warm kitchen, sipping milk with ice, waving the trails of her lit cigarette away. They danced like phantoms.
