tar fairy

misleading stillness

moving at a pace unseen

flitting, winged being

back before you know it

in a twirling flurry of ash

cigarette smoke dancing

on your palate

leaving grey footprints on your mind

dainty flecks of tar stick up

pink air sacks

bobbly black surface

brer rabbit breath

tar baby coughs

side of fist on centre chest

wheezing fever
