we write poems #22 what's for dinner

Coco
Take your lover in your arms
Change the colours
to black and white
Chanel No. 5
Grasse
Eyedropper of oil
with
flowers, rose du mai, jasmine,
and a synthetic musk
'a concrete' to 'an absolute'
Blend to create a scent for the world
A memory is stirred by the trace of a bouquet
Chanel No. 5
A millinery girl with flair

    I had some trouble getting this one done. I just recently saw the movie about Coco and Igor and decided I would write about perfume.

  12. Oh, this is really smelly (in a good way). Salute.

    Side note: On first read, I saw "military girl." Wow. Double take.
