After a series of
deliberate  
well placed strokes

Some kind of fusion
occurred  

And then, 

They reached
for a cigarette …

    A wonderful description of striking a match on a well worn matchbox's sandpaper strip.

    It takes such insight to see the poetry such a mundane task, now another fragment of the past. Similar to my sex life really.

        If I read more into this, it will bring on a hefty swoon. Fido will chuck buckets of cold water on me! lol.
        Did ya know Mary (Hopkin)? Not personally of course - you know her songs?! 'Twas about the time I stopped watching 'Top of the Pops' I reckon.

          I did not know that .. but am not surprised... thanks for popping in sir... have a great Tuesday

            What would I know, about any alternative reading of it? Fido never lets me have much ardour or excitement. He says - of course it's ONLY about striking matches! lol.

              This kind of behavior will kill you! You also know it's habit forming or addictive. There will be life-altering consequences, not to mention the cost. So if you have to chose which to lose, just keep on smoking.

                See how all that smoking has aged me...
                I forget what came before that....
                AHHHH!!!! YES, lighting of the match.

                • Neville


                  Hey, you wont believe how much I have missed you Suresh, thanks for stopping by and saying hi.. Hope you are safe and well my friend

                  Neville

                  • Suresh

                    Yes, and you too have been in my thoughts continuously.
                    Hoping that you have recovered well, and believing so by your humor
