Picturesque by Aisha Wilson (First Prize)

there you sit
by the window,
a lit cigarette
between your fingers,
smoke spreading from
between your thin lips;
grey like your lies.
you are picturesque
silhouetted against the lights
of the city at night,
grey spirals rising
over your head.
I breathe in,
allowing the
sweet smell of cancer
to fill my lungs
and take my breath
away
