Clove Oil


Extravagant largess,
no limp coincidence
a scented muted magic
wafting messages olfactory
the massage that expresses
an indecent subtleness in
cupid warmth to leave
whole-body luxury

Indulgently expressed
as pain is laved away –
mysteries of antique
fragrances invade replacing
ordinary lexis with
exotic dreams
