I had
a chat
with death
today.

We shared
a good laugh
and gave each
other a smile.

I don't know
. . do you
think he can?

I was
surprised
he was that
kind of guy.

That
jokes around
and showed
me things he's
not allowed to.

yet he did.

and I saw.

We sat there
as I enjoyed
the stick
between
my fingers
like my life
depends on it.

He
inhaled
through the cigar,
burning down,
and puffing a cloud.

Before
stomping
it in the ground
killing the fire.

He said
"C'mon I
have a
schedule
to catch."
