Author’s Note: The challenge was to write something in 100 words that described how a smell could positively or negatively impact desire.

Margarita’s tonight.
The smell burns my nose,
He says it burns his throat.
Shake. Shake. Shake.
I run and hide.
Close my eyes tight.
Maybe he won’t find me.
Maybe I’ll be safe tonight.
Too many margarita’s.
Too many times.
I leave and start new.
Bourbon and Scotch.
The smoky scent
Reminds me of campfire
Clink. Clink. Clink.
Swirl it around the rocks.
They tumble like boulders.
Like we do into bed.
Tender, but strong.
No need for sweet mixes
To cover the flavors.
No need for facades.
Or masks in public.
Whiskey is as pure as love.
