Taking It Easy

Refusing to look out
Urged to hammer
That sole tarnished furniture of steel
And deafen the desolate corners
Crush its contents
Of a life of waste—
Of chores and churning stomachs
Of a mirror and the morning papers
Of fences and flights of stairs
Of clashes and clasped hands.
Pondering on a cigarette’s worth
Urged to indignation
But sticks to the cigarette’s worth.
