    I

    Yellow on white,
    smell of fried egg:
    For dipping bread.

    II

    loves me, loves me not, loves me, loves me not…

    The flower loses petals in a spiral.
    Doubt is fatal, debate cowardly, lethal
    between two opposite poles.

    III

    A faint aroma of saffron
    and a stench of sewage.
    Impassive, the odourless complicity of white.

    IV

    Like a premonition,
    before I understand it
    I feel the stench.

    V

    Of grief and pain
    I recognize the smell.
    I no longer need to look to follow the procession.
