We look for our day’s poem
In a night’s stack of images
All we find is strange smell.

The smell would linger long
In our spaces and our bodies,
And overwhelm our nerves.

Is this smell a hospital smell?
It comes from nerves living
In bodies of total strangers.

Why is nobody treating girl?
Nobody treats the dead girl .
No one treats strange smell.

Why is this a strange smell?
It comes from dead nerves
In bodies of total strangers.
