The Girl Who Smelled Too Good

There's a place where I worked
where we sat at computers and wrote things
that other people had said and not said and said

working in this place where I worked
was a girl
not just a girl, but A Girl, you see
with chestnut hair
a smooth face
pretty eyes and a smile
but the remarkable part
about this girl
was that every time
she walked into the room
her smell
her perfume
her scent would permeate
and distract
and I couldn't work until she had

Flowers and velvet and vanilla biscuits
chocolate and roses;
a very intense smell.
I still miss it,
from time to time
as I sit and I work and smell
