_In a white ashtray:
a cigarette butt
still smoking,
its filter lightly lipsticked.
 
I smell it when I come in
and wonder who's come to visit.
 
She left the mail in the box
and a goodbye note
pinned to the curtain
over the kitchen sink.
 
All these years in heaven
and I never knew my angel smoked.

I love the anonymity of 'she' throughout the poem, it adds a sense of intrigue to it. I also love the descriptive language and the way it flows. I feel as if this has an ethereal lyrical quality to it, and I really rather enjoy it. Nice work!

Okay, Mr Hix; I dont know how I never encountered your work before, as long as I've (we've?) been hanging around, but I can tell you this: you're writing my kind of stuff, man; stuff I wish I'd written. I loved your recent work in <i>Curio</i> & have read a few other bits here & there. Now, I'm gonna go find much more of you. New fan.
