senses #1 – smell


i remember you
distinctively by your smell:
and your earthly sweat,
the tangy cleanness
of generic white soap
on your neck
and clove cigarette smoke
mixed with aftershave
below your mouth.

memory #34


you smelled like skin and sweat and something that was typically you;
like damp earth
and cool shade in a sunny afternoon.
