Ode to perfume

Ode to perfume

Dear long departed 

It is to let you know 

I still remember you

And those meetings 

When you would come

Taking a shower 

Wearing a peach perfume.

O! how I 

whiffed about your hair,

Your armpit, 

My best of your memories 

Are caged in fragrance 

They still visit me 

Touch me 

When I’m rushing about in the busy crowd

Or idly reposing in the garden

they come to life 

When I’m nearby a  peach’s tree 

Where the peaches have ripened 

 Where I get to gnaw their taste 

Smell their fragrance 

Observe their carrion being penetrated and scooped by the maggots.

Ode, perfume, slammed,
