Marlboro Red by Danya Raquel

Danya Raquel | March 24th, 2018 | poetry | No Comments


She offered a cigarette to him;
Marlboro red, straight from the pack,
But he told her, “I’m on my way to the gym,”
And she took the cigarette back

He bought a pack on his way home
and figured he’d be alright:
Smoked the whole thing on his own;
His gym pants are now too tight.
