Dodo 2020 by Zoologist is Perfume Poetry.

Is it your novelty that seduces?
Or is it how well you’re playing your part?
Like a contradiction – you’re elusive.
And I’ll never see you when we part.

You gave me fresh, green herbs as a bouquet –
But they sweated all day in the sun.
And I never understood you, anyway.
When you pushed me away. . . it still was fun.

Like the Dodo, our connection is extinct.
Like a Dodo, I was dull to follow.
But you gave me a dream to believe in.
You cut me loose, said goodbye,
And then you winked.
