After her shower

she writes a poem

in the condensation on the mirror,

then watches it evaporate.

.

It was all about the fragrance –

the coconut

in her shampoo,

the rose water on her face.

.

She remembers what he liked –

Emeraude and Chantilly Lace

while he wore English Leather

which drove her over the edge.

.

They’d dance past the chaperones

and steal away to his car,

Lou Christie on the radio

and lightning striking twice

.

and later in her room alone,

his scent still in her hair

the poems would magically write themselves

in the silk dust on the mirror.
