Why I hate taking the Bus

Someone on the bus today

Smelled like you.

That fragrance

Initiated

A state

Of cognitive dissonance.

I was at once

Turned on

And nauseated.

The sensation

I used to associate

With exultation

Now created

Exasperation.

Smell is the most ancient

Human faculty.

How I wish

I could eradicate

Your scent

From my memory.

I am an aspiring investigative journalist with a single dream: to save the world. It may seem impossible, but I believe knowledge promotes tolerance, and tolerance breeds empathy, kindness, and compassion. Love is the cure for Earth's cancer.
