Smoked Words by ₩ebster

Poem

Surrounded by clouds
The thoughts of my uncle
Are constricted.
Where his anger, sadness and anxiety
Find their temporary residence.
Their journey as fatal to them
As it is to their owner.
Mounted on camels
Through a thick strangle of residue
From ignited vegetation.
After offering
Only brief moments of escape,
They leave behind ashened lungs.
No longer aiding the voices of kin.
But emotions hidden
Within the memories
Of smoke infused conversations.
