Follow your nose, proposed the old man,
straight forward, straight forward, plunge!
As opposed to the mind (I suppose),
heart, belly, genitalia. Can't miss it,
the aroma of roses and vernix caseosa,
guide and remedy for the blind curves,
the perpendiculars, paring down
the big picture to the opportune particulars
by an ambrosial scent;
straight forward, straight forward,
moment to moment, blindly led, blindly led,
hie, lovers, condensed, tapered and myopic,
towards the maze-concealed, aromatic,
romantic, long-sought, sniffed out truth.
O child of God, you will never arrive by a hesitant,
reasonable, cautious and half-stepping approach.
