the bad woman said - I don't
blame you, really, and I thank
your tactful nose for sniffing
silently but I don't mind it. See
this smell? I think you can it's so
strong and round and fleshed,
it has shape and a way to
speak, eyes, even, and legs. Old
oranges, sour milk, turned eggs,
spoiled fish, that's me
and I love
them all.
