This is a fanciful - if I were a perfume:
If I were a perfume, I would have hints of savory at my base,
be warm with an herbal center
and honeysuckle florals would make me seem gentle.
I am not one to float away,
so don't count on me to evaporate -
though perhaps I come and go,
cleaving, cleaving to the skin
taking from deep within beneath the blood and sweat and dreams
something more real than how real seems.
