Nicotine Suite (No.7)

not present but counted, think of it
like the cheese left out, the slight
greasiness of the bag, overnight
stays with distant relatives, polite
down-looking while they say a prayer.
it's all last minute, a fact even if
the creationists are right - 7 days
for a world, no wonder it is full
of procrastinators. the silence
on the line feels live, contrast to
the deadness of so many eyes
"welcome to _[blank]_" unblinking
but narcoleptic pro forma and
salaciously bitter dregs. did I
find everything all right? the philosophical
dimensions of the question stop me cold.
