That Scent I Thought Would Be the End

I never wasted time

on that scent, that scent,
because I imagined sulphur–that’s knowing.

Knowing without knowing, and not knowing
you’re unknowing, that scent I thought

would be the end of it all, a dark room
with a single tungsten light bulb

with Cirque du Soleil aspirations auditioning
from the ceiling, above the last smoke

of an understanding glock,
and that scent on which

I never wasted time.
