The Smoking Man

He took a puff of his cigarillo

and walked up to the line

and took his place

He looked to his left

at the man

who always stood next to him

every day

and simply nodded

he glanced down

a caught a glimpse

of the great serpent

it spat yellow venom.

He zipped his trousers,

and nodded once more at the man

Goodbye, he thought

Until tomorrow

He realized he forgot his cigarillo in the bathroom

So he returned

to find the man

still standing.

“You’re back early”

said the man

He turned around,

from the urinal.

His serpent had been replaced

by the cigarillo

He walked over

to take a puff
