Olfactory detour

Olfactory detour

It’s not a choice to go back
To uncover emotions like a body in a bog

Some kind of exponential formula governs this distance between
now and smell
Taste and then
falling through a portal
Into instantly familiar territory mapped out in brain waves

Walking with the dead amongst the rubble

Long enough to breathe yourself back to life

As you know it

    • i think your comment sounds more poetic than my poem

      the portal
      the wormhole
      to then

      and now I feel like I have brass in pocket
      “i’m special, so special”
      oh no
      I’m no Chrissy Hine
      πŸ™‚

      thanks so much
