SMOKE

smoke, although
suggesting fire
doesn't necessarily
mean fire

it may simply be
one of those
quiet mysteries
requiring the services

of that detective fellow
Sherlock
and his sidekick
Watson
pursing smoke
filled dreams


History, Stephen said, is a nightmare from which I am trying to awake.

James Joyce

Very deep poem, gives me pause for much reflection as well.
