I remember....I think.


I remember, I think!!


I remember

that smokey joint
the aroma so heady,

and sharp,
the world a buzz

around me,
as coals glowed

like in hades,
with demons

hypnotizing the mind.


Yes, I

 inhaled, I admit it,

and I breathed an

expansion of my thoughts

back out in a cloud

far above nine.

The slow melting

into a blur,
and the ecstasy

of each minute
floating skyward

with my mood.

The taste of a  

cold iced tea
each individual

ingredient expanded
beyond any flavors

ever known.

The hunger

to devour all
and the intense bite
of that first cigarette lit
then the long

hours studying
the many varied colors,
sights and sounds
that were never

quite seen
in like manner before.

I remember

that smokey joint
as I sit pondering

a newport
and a match

that will
in no way enlighten
me as much as 

that smokey joint
I inhabited long ago.
