C- Camel Wides



fourteen and smoking
thinking  we were the coolest
puffing on Camels

hidding in alleys
sharing one between many
smelling like cigs.

  

living an image                                         
twisted of sales and money
societal lie.                                    
                                             .

Way back when, lighting up that first cigarette was a rite of passage. It took 20 years to correct my mistake. Excellent post.

I was 15 and it was a stolen Marlboro from my dad's pack. That first puff turned into three packs a day.

Thank God, August 1, 1978 I quit cold-turkey.
