“Cigar Bar” by L. K. Thayer

I went from downward facing dog in Hollywood

to the

V Cut Smoke Shop & Lounge

watched the Minnesota Vikings win the game

in the smoky beat-up red leather couch room

with a bullfighter on the wall swinging his cape

dancing to Aretha Franklin’s “Rock Steady”

straight as an arrow, cigar in hand, smoke rings

swirling to the rhythm of poetic

spontaneous combustion on a rainy

Sunday afternoon in L.A.

    Definitely agree with what you mentioned. Your explanation was by far the easiest to understand. I say to you, I often get annoyed when people discuss things that they plainly have no clue about. You managed to hit the nail right on the head and also rolled out everything without complication. Hopefully, other folks can take a signal. Will likely be back for additional. Thanks
