i was happy last year

and the year before that my cigarettes tasted differenly

and the year before that i was too content to hold them to a taste

and now they are wearing on my skin

and i have to exhale through my nose to mimic the taste you used to give them that they gave to me

and they do not taste the same

and i am not happy

their taste will only dull and will never be new again

i will never be happy again
