Tell me what he smelled like, I can’t remember
Not right out the tub, when he smelled how we wanted him to
When he just smelled like him
Use the present tense
One last time

    Is this wee poem as heart-breaking as it seems? It made me stop breathing for a minute, even on second reading. Nicely done.

    Is this poem based on true events? Well done, by the way.
