Tubéreuse de Madras by Boucheron from its niche library, Boucheron Collection
A tuberose folded in banana leaves, of heady consistency, with indolic gasoline spurts
the tuberose of a Harley-Davidson bikeress wearing a white, fresh dress with straps,...
stepping on the gas in high heels
then she stops at a gas station and orders a banana cream pie in a diner
there's Indian dessert on the menu
She can now feel the luxury of spices, of sandalwood palaces
by a lake under the moonlight
The sky is inky black - a blue almost black
childhood memories surface
of smelling like heaven and grown-up
the biker woman in a cool ajouré dress orders a glass of milk
she can still taste her pretty marvellous lunch in her mouth
she puts on some sunscreen to ride back under the sun
feeling mellow and creamy
Off she rides with jasmine and almond blossoms escaping from her exhaust pipe
leaving a trail of soft, salty clouds and oil fields faraway
