What is, is

“Sunshine’s been keeping me up for days.” Elliott Smith

On a porch, my porch, my chair, I rock slightly and light another cigarette even though I know the first drag will struggle down my throat. The sun has long since risen and now is over the trees which had kept me cool enough to make it through the early morning and handle the inane chirping of birds. A car passes, a car that is red or maybe even not red, could be some sort of shade of red but I can’t seem to tell and I stop trying. The sun commands my attention and I have to wipe sweat starting to pour from my skin. I could surrender, enter the door directly behind me. I grab my pack of cigarettes, and shake the box and like some mystic reading sticks, I look into the open pack. “Stay.”
