Someone else's pipe

my front teeth don't fit
in the groove
and the bowl is burnt
the carved wood
feels wrong in my hand
and the mouthpiece is loose
the deep thoughts
definitely aren't mine
and the plastic tip is chipped
it doesn’t stay lit
for more than a minute
and it gives more worries than it takes
it's hard to clean
and harder to keep
the smell infects everything it touches
the graven leaves
on the bowl
wouldn't be my first choice
its a little bit short
and a little less curvy
a little more Popeye than Professor
but I like it
for 1.99
I love it
