THE DAY MY COAT CAUGHT ON FIRE AT FOODTOWN

I was careless.
As was my habit

Entering a no-smoking area,
I stuck my lit pipe in my ragged pocket.
It fell through a hole igniting the lining.

Smoke poured from my coat.
I stamped it out frantically.

Nobody noticed.
I shrugged my shoulders
And proceeded with my shopping.
