From Poison To Perfume

We can save the world

if we can turn whale vomit into perfume

and call the vomit ‘ambergris’

though scientists call it ‘whale feces’

(not fish feces cause a whale is a mammal).

Perfume makers are magicians

turning that crap that whales spat out

into an olfactory symphony

hypnotizing me

sitting across from me

her perfume hitting all the right notes

my nostrils growing larger than my eyes

breathing in whale shit

and smelling love.
