Don't knock it till you try it. My secret habit is laced with sugar scent and jasmine crystal. The specter of vice plumes gracefully into tradition. Without limit, this power continues to rise, reaching up to the gods. I refuse to cry aloud but will continue to spice each inhalation with a prayer. Pleading for touch, sensation and sin. Not just any hand will do. Only the kitten who has traveled the world and knows just which leaf has been dried to perfection, rolled to precision, and packed in just tight enough. This incandescent fire will glow hot at the tip and burn smooth on your lips, until you crave yet another stroke of luck. Stop and take a moment to see the risque seethe from my radiance. It will linger just long enough for you to make a wish and then vanish as it climbs the translucent stairway to the Jade gate of opulence and desire. [Lelia Pollett]
