Perfumed


Why did we decide that our
natural fragrance must be
covered with anointments
an array of masking oils
creams, perfumes, and deodorants?

And who decided what
body hair is acceptable
and which must be shaved
painfully plucked, dyed, or hidden?

How many ways do we reject
what God has so wondrously
made? Behold the intricate
design, each part woven into a
masterpiece built to hold
the soul of God’s Beloved
co-creator, soul of pure love.
