Could Not Care to Write| Poetry DEmix No. 11

“For, how I now detest this Vetiver. I could not care to write, what-so-ever.”

I sit back, listening to classy jazz,
what they call “Italian Lounge Music.”
The kind with flutes, bongoes, all that pizzazz.
That’s why I love it; that’s why I choose it.

And I sit at my desk, pondering rhyme.
How to configure my latest update:
My remix of poems written past-time.
Scrambling because I am running late.

“Ah, no, just throw it out!” I told myself.
“The recreation just won’t do today.”
Looking over my years of fragrance wealth,
this post about Guerlain – it’s in my way.

For, how I now detest this Vetiver.
I could not care to write, what-so-ever.

Poets, if you’ve been following my blog, you know that I often take old poems and “remix” them for new posts. However, I came across one that I just had no desire to – one about the cologne Guerlain Vetiver. That’s because I went from loving it – to not being able to stand it. I am not sure what happened, but it left me with no taste to write!
