The Smell Test


That smell –

when the dignity of daily human existence

is tainted

by belief, ideology, power, arrogance,

anger –

it’s the stench of death,

what doesn’t give way to life.

There’s a wind that clears the air,

not by avoiding death

in these forms of false immortality,

but by going-through


a wondrous odorless fragrance,

the permeation of life-and-death

knowing no bounds

in eyes transparently meeting.


how does that happen?

Said it,

through dignity

(always and only mutual).
