He Makes Me Smell Him by Alan Kaufman
published in Volume 5, Issue 2 on June 1st, 1998

among the faceless
deodorized
masses on
the streetcar
i sit
inhaling
       the
trash bag stuff
squeezed between
               his
                  knees
the stink
that doesn't
care

that residentially
challenged
        unwashed
        ass
     smell that is
          a prophecy
      of fallen
        empires
