Ode to Cigarette Withdrawal

Anticipation builds
an iron lung

the sweet desire
for oral pleasure
still lingers
on my


one last

she slips
into something
warm & inviting

& I watch him
slowly undress
before raising his shaft

can I have one?
her voice
pleading desperado

he assumes the position
& I am sucked right in

he gestures
she folds, rolls
& sets her fire to smoulder

her submission
his mission

  1. Good thing you put up the cigarette piccy, I was beginning to wonder what it might be about….’shaft’….’suck’…Sorry just me and my juvenile mind!!
    Again, I do like the way you structure your poems, Jodie.

    • Yip! I failed last night. I had 4 cigarettes… so now I am smoke-free once more. I just can’t seem to get past my Tuesday nights. I may have to miss one next week so that I have 2 weeks smoke free under my belt. It may give me more of an edge to say ‘no’. Jx


    • This is a premonition of the kind of torture I will be under tonight when I go to Poetry Live to read. I am 5 days off the cigarettes. Tonight is the first of many tests…well exam in my case. I will be surrounded by lovely sexy gorgeous poets that I want to suck…with… Lol. Mind you, some don’t smoke, who are hotter…so maybe there is a bonus in there some where… Jx
