A LITTLE SUNDAY JAZZ

Perfume so sweet...

Why is her perfume so sweet?

I’m buzzing like a bumble bee

For that anticipated nectar,

So heavily layered on thick as tar

Rich like pre-colonized Africa

Your heat like that of the Sahara

Your walk and way like footprints in concrete.

Permanent like tattoos, colorful, unique

Your scent lingers and permeates

It resonates, radiates, stimulates

Is it your honey, or the funny way you buzz right on by me?

No other’s song could sing to thee words more beautiful to say

Than when words to pen and pad do meet.

The song is on the way

Then the smell, with my eyes closed to see

It’s the scent of falling in love

That is why perfume is so sweet.
