>we write poems #22 what’s for dinner

Take your lover in your arms
Change the colours
to black and white
Chanel No. 5
Eyedropper of oil
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
