The woman captured me
with her perfume.
Took me by surprise.
Aromatic, no dove, her.
‘Hello, who are you?’ she asked pleasantly,
smiling over the back of her chair.
Invisible me, note-taking,
lifted my bowed head,
my surprised eyes.
Later, she exclaims laughing from the stage,
‘I’m an Amazon Warrior!
Who’s with me?’
Later still, her thick, heavy hair
Sleeps fast in my open hands.
