Scent trails of men or women pass by,

Stay lingering in the air…

Often hold clues as to where and why

And just who was there.

Olden times scent was often distinct

And “stinky” was often the word….

Men and women each had their own smells,

Bathing was not always preferred!

The other day I caught a scent trail

From a person I knew was a man….

His cologne or perfume didn’t give him away,

Some mixed signals were at hand.

A feminine scent on a man is his choice

But blurs his identity…

The last time I borrowed perfume from my wife,

I fell in love…with me.

    You did a nice job on this one, Jonathan! You are truly a good poet! Your sense of humor was great in this one, because you are quite correct, the men and women have similar scents, these days! I like the lighter, citrusy scents! Smiles, Robin
