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.
