Fragrance Poetry inspired by Full Incense from Montale.

Swaying incense imitates pendulums.
The back-and-forth, swaying like memories. Priceless moments, suddenly expired. It leaves a lot left to be desired.
Your classic aftershave signature scent.
The varnish on the pews. . cedar ceilings. Soft, grey skies. Long-lost relatives’ faces. How stalled thoughts drift to new and old places.
I slide down to the brown kneeling cushion.
Life keeps ticking like the incense swinging. Familiarity often brings peace. But I’m saying “Goodbye” down on my knees.
Here, at a funeral, hearts convalesce.
Lost in thought by the scent of “Full Incense.”

The Pleasant and Unpleasant, Catch a Memory.
There’s so much to say about this fragrance, yet so little I can say. . .A mix of leather and fecal aromas. . . Translated “Oud Leather of Arabia. . .” Even though it may not be a pleasant smell by itself, like the smell of a camel, it can bring you back mentally to happy times – perhaps on a farm, or on a trip where you got to travel to an exotic place (exotic to those like myself in the USA) where you were surrounded with camels.

Is it blue, is it bleu, or is it blurred?
Certain things make me feel sad and centered. . . .mais la vie est belle. . .
I stand tall, imitate the masculine,
just to discover incitement run thin. . . .mais la vie est belle. . .
Debating with feelings leaves me unsure.
Like I’m stripped down by hot soapy water. . . .mais la vie est belle. . .
I can only fight emotions so far.
My heart’s been crushed by “L’Invasion Barbare.”
. . .mais la vie est belle. . .
