The Resurrection of Jesus
Digital Photograph, Jean-Marie Lee, 2018

JML-PLOGS poetic commentary is below

Quitter

You know— just how lucky
Referring to my exit—

A mere fifteen minutes
Before the contra flow—

And the fifteen minutes
Of slander testifying—

And the fifteen minutes—
It takes to make stir fry—

Oh, that look— just insists on—
Making revisions with my middle finger

But there was a time— before smoking
A time full of liquid mirrors— I could

Will the world to move in an instant—
I thought it was living like I was dying.

And we wouldn’t have gone
To court if I wasn’t dying—

From resentment— you said I was bitter.
I replied, “It takes one to know one.”

Tit for tat shouldn’t ever last
Longer than fifteen minutes

The healing time and distance
Needed more than fifteen minutes

I know those memories—
Are permanent— ingrained

And we grow but can’t change
Our humanity— so— what now

It’s a pleasure being your pin pal
As maturity breathes forgiveness

—I can’t go back to cigarettes.

XOXO! JML
