An Ode To The Joy Of Cigarettes And Coffee

Poem By Dominic Windram

An ode to the joy of cigarettes and coffee:
It seems one complements the other perfectly.
Such a splendid way to enhance imperfect hours.
O how they revive the poet's creative powers!

Comments about An Ode To The Joy Of Cigarettes And Coffee

Thanks Shaun. I'm pleased you like this poem. I love the picture of Iggy Pop and Tom Waits which accompanies it. I so miss being able to have a cigarette with a pint in a pub. That anally retentive, bore of a politician, Gordon Brown, banned smoking in pubs without consulting the general population didn't he? I agree with Nigel Farage, there should be some pubs where one is allowed to smoke. People that don't like it don't need to go closed!
Such guilty pleasures indeed. Naughty but nice and highly addictive and welcoming. A most neat and well written rhyming quatrain on display here Dominic, one I could barely make out through a steamy fresh coffee and thick pungent Marlboro haze. Five stars and well deserved too. Many thanks good sir and I wish you well.

May I Never Cease To Wonder

May I never cease to wonder:
At the cascading crystal blue waters
Of the waterfall; at each new dawn's
Sweet sunbursts of flesh pink magic.

Winter's Last Rose

Winter's last rose; rose of regret:
O how once your radiant beauty
Shimmered in summer's potent hour.
Now your faded petals offer,

These Days 3

These days, everyone seems distracted by their
Portable universes; their cool, handheld phones.
Nobody seems inclined to engage or converse
With anyone else. O what a sad state of affairs!

A Lament For The Slow Death Of The 1960's Counter Culture

O you were once wild and beautiful
When summer's rays reclined in your hair
And your Being blazed in valleys and hills.
O you were a force so vital and rare


The cold marble is caressed with fiery grace;
In sculpted textures of figurative skin.
She holds the body lost in grief's solemn place.
She cradles Him as though he was a child still.
