we smoke cigarettes becauseMature

We smoke cigarettes because the number of stubs in the ashtray directly links up to how many days we’ve sat here, silently watching old movies and sipping on whiskey, wishing we were older or younger or smarter or prettier or dead.  At the end of the week I can count how many times I’ve thought, I wish I could start today over.  How many times I’ve wished you were a different person, wished I was a different person, wished we were different people loving each other in different lives in a different apartment full of different objects and feelings and books, drinking different alcohol and thinking different thoughts.

The End
