Unworthy of Anything More by Mikaela Kirin


The smell of your cigarette is sweet

sweeping into me,

my stomach growling for something to fill its cavities and

even though it normally makes me sick,

tonight it smells like popcorn

and a fire and pine

like the side of your neck when I used to

brush it with my lips;

tonight that cigarette follows me through

two different bedroom doors

and it’s like you always knew how fast I

could suffocate from something so sweet,

something so small.
