Headline Poem 11/25/14 -- giving them away

giving them away 

At the medical center,
I keep my curtain drawn. 
When I tire of my ceiling view,
I muster a walk to the window 
and look down 
to see 
my granddaughter smoking a cigarette on the balcony.  
I'm up here bartering for breaths 
and she's down there 
giving them away.
