#NaPoWriMo2016 – Day 25

Out of the night that covers me –
moonlight eclipsed, starlight diffused
through the clouds and the fog

Despite the darkened streets,
I know 7-Eleven is just ahead
and open early for coffee and donuts

Although “they” say a donut
is the worst thing you can eat –
all that sugar – no nutritive value –

Deep fried, and the half smokes
are even worse. But natural cigarettes
are safer because they have no chemicals –

We go there anyway – and hope,
at least, the ATM is working
