SMELL

As I walked into the train today
seeing a surprisingly empty bay
I chose a seat – felt like a luxury;
Then I looked at her as
I suddenly felt drained
and an alarm raced to my brain;
The shabby appearance, downcast eyes
the old bag with frayed edges
all now made sense to my senses!
Don’t we all know so well
when assaulted, like hell
by this familiar smell?
Is it a wonder that without our luxuries
or maybe all those accessories
our bodies all emit the same odors!
