Ruby Redbird

Behold a Ruby Redbird
by the diving board.
Clean upfront;
a stiff tart
but
the perfect thing
to taste on a dewy
summer Sunday.
Taken in a morning dip.
Sharing with you a half wet
Marlboro Lite. Not your brand.
Stale, moist, sour
and more a place marker
for one of yours
than a really friendly smoke.
