You could not see me but smell me as I pass by, I am a Man to you. I am Vaseline For Men sitting on the shelf at Shopper’s Drug Mart, not smelling like flora and fauna but of lust and moisture. Screen printed on a cotton-stained handkerchief, I was saved from the garbage, pinned back with dress pins, I hang from the corner of the ceiling, chilling in the back of the room, watching life pass before me. Mass produced and overstocked - you chose me to take home. Off the shelf and in your home, dark, I sit in the corner of your zoom call.
