movie titles and a bit of poetic whimsy
Scent of a Woman

Adam assumed he knew
All About Eve.
He believed her perfume
was apple and fig,
yielding, fruity, post-coital.
He was unaware
the scent of a woman
bends with the light,
a balm as complex
as the name of the rose.
At dawn she may be resinous, piney,
at noon blossoming to full carnal flower,
a smoky black Narcissus.
Adam counted it best
when she smelled of Paradise,
iris petals soaked by rain,
and faded greenery.
He began to keep vigil
for tremors in the air.
He was learning how to
inherit the wind,
to inhabit her changing, fragrant
field of dreams.
