SKULL WITH BURNING CIGARETTE

SKULL WITH BURNING CIGARETTE
William Wright Harris

skeleton- bones

     almost bleach white

          against the contrast

               of the black

background-

     an apparition

          in limbo lighting-

               filling the space

 that was once

     its lungs with rich

          tobacco smoke

               unable to be tasted-

van gogh-

     questioning mortality

          with every

               brushstroke
