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!

If you want to see the original post this was modeled after, check out “Guerlain Vetiver.” And if you want some help picking a fragrance you do like, check out my post “How to Pick a New Perfume of Cologne” You can also check out Jeremy Fragrance for some great recommendations.
