' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' The Smell Of Purple(For Scarlett) - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

She says she can
smell yellow.

She says she can
smell blue.

Despite not being able to
spell either colour.

'Yellow smells
the same as blue.'

'...like a wet kitty
drying by the fire.'

'Red smells like
Mummy when she kisses.'

'Her kisses smell different
when she kisses you...
...then she smells like flames
with little orange tips! '

'Purple
is my favourite smell...

...it smells just like
a magic spell! '

I kiss her goodnight
like violet(only lighter)

with little flecks of purple
scattered here & there.
