Smoke ’em if you got ’em

Spanish California settlers measured the vast

boundaries of their stolen land by cigarettes

—so many cigarettes north, so many east.

Time can also be measured by cigarettes.

“Each done butt takes 14 minutes off your life.”

The firing squad target gets his last smoke.

And it is sort of Zen to live your life

from Camel straight to Camel straight.
