the insignificance of eating

for enjoyment is so me

I’d rather carry a fragrance 

that smelled good enough

to cause attention to

each word 

arresting attention

as if i breathed patchouli

and frankincense 

be frank and sense

sheer oddity at its best

I need moments like this

like chain smokers

working in smoke free zones 

addicted to the relief of the moment

seemingly repeated with each toke

that impossible place


I’d rather carry a fragrance

that is hypnotic enough

to draw conclusions 

that accurately depict solutions

the fragrance is sweet

and bees are confused by it

ants salivate 

and congregate 

and send scouts

and take souvenirs 

to bury in time capsules

to hopefully capture the essence

the fragrance

to lie unearthed
