PAD 28 smell


Pappap smelled of saw dust, cologne and hand lotion
Sawdust because he was a carpenter
Retired, he’d help all the little old ladies in town
Building porches, repairing wooden items, making picture frames
Lotion because all that wood dried his hands out.
Cologne because he had a lady friend
and after his work was done
he’d drive the fourteen miles to her home
and be gone till the wee hours
waking up early the next morning
ready for a new day of work
and entertaining his grandkids.
