Nasal Cancer

Here's the companion piece I mentioned during the last post. Enjoy...



NASAL CANCER


Flagitious flatulent fragrance drifting in the close quarters of public restrooms
The aroma of the once-living emanating from the vents of fast food establishments
     (you may lick your lips, but you also consume their fears and tears)
Potent perfume of sewage as you drive on the overpass, the troll beneath the bridge
     (you'll never successfully remove the stench from your upholstery)
The skunk run over by someone else's vehicle, but whose carcass is nowhere to be seen
A fresh turd of unknown origin, now wedged within the treads of your shoe
The ripe scent of a socially inept man too lazy to bathe regularly
     (he can afford comic books, but apparently not soap)
Vomit from the twenty-something partygoer, causing a domino effect
The overbearing power of freshly cut lawns in suburbia
Rotten vegetation, caused by low tides and high humidity
