four minutes is too long
i remember the smell of the smoke
i remember the smell because it still lingers
slid the windows open
but it stays, unwelcome
after sleep and a morning shower
it sticks to my skin
maybe spraying perfume will block the stink...
next time, remember to push the "popcorn" button on the microwave.
