Inhale, once

I love the smell of garlic on my hands

despite my vampiric smile,

in one inhale I forget the day

and all its rain.

I forget the pens I’ve held,

faces I’ve touched

and moments I’ve breathed.

 

I love the smell of garlic

because it lingers.

It is the only thing which lingers

 

longer than you.
