Smoking Is Bad for You

Tunnel to the core,
get halfway there
and look around.

You’re not burnt
crisp, rather
in disbelief
while you
reach around
for a cigarette
and a match.

Then you realize
smoking is bad
for you.

Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
