Notice

Smelling of lotion
I fell in love tonight
on the way home from the drugstore

On my knees I rub
the green chalk into nothing

most of the time which is
what most people notice

the man at the bus stop who stares

the jogger who dodges my crouching form

most of the time which is...

and how the shadows who have come the farthest
are the thickest and softest of them all.

for some reason this reminds me of when I kept my moms quilt...because it smelled like her. It eventually lost the smell and replaced with my own so i gave it back. :)

pinkapplecore - Aw. That's really sweet. Scent associations are crazy powerful, huh?
