Passive Smoking

In the steady dance of shapes
The smoke makes
Between us -

I see 
My father
His anxiety
Over loss of control.

You see
Your father
His disappointment
Over unkept trust.

The crystal ball of nicotine
Attempts, only,
a foretelling
But tells mine to you
And yours to me.

We both have been
passive smoking.
