Franks Psychiatry 2 #17: where the air

when it rains out there
we smoke
in here


thirty of us


the dayroom fills
smoke descending from the ceiling


until the only air available
is gasped
by lying full length
on the floor


but still
we smoke

    Yep, been there, back in the seventies and eighties you would have to shout a persons name to see if he was in the office as you could barley see through the room.

      Those were the days, GF!! Those were the days.

      Another peek of a snippet of the days gone by! Your words in response to GF’s remind me of Mary Hopkin’s rendition of “Those were the days my friend, We thought they’d never end...”!
      Thank you for the share!
