House of an Evil Jin

.
Smoke snakes from house roofs
in lazy loops of loose thought

as idle as the wisps of dreamers
who burn to know why god has wrought

I drive by with windows open
The smell of char comes drifting in

It’s more like March than January
So odd the way this year begins

Malingering smoke might mesmerize me
and lazy thought could do me in

as easy hours will hypnotize me
till my skull’s the house of an evil jin
