The Nose Knows

She was over him. The relationship was done.
She was sure of it the day she noticed that that
she didn't like the way he smelled.
Something had changed.
Lovers have scents.
Ex-lovers have odours.

Sylvia Plath at the Bed and Bath

(painted on the wall of the home supply superstore)

"- There must be quite a few things that a hot
bath won't cure - but I don't know many of them."

(I wonder what she should have said about the kitchen.)

Totally Actual Teenage Poetry

Love is a four letter word.
Take heed, it hurts.
For as I was told,
and as I believe,
if it hurts,
you are in love.
Follow that hurt until your heart explodes.

The Lonliness of the Long Distance Lover

He came with eager delight.
Her name upon his lips,
His mind all over her body.
