memory perfume ...

driving home
  days of rain
    fresh cut grass

memories of another time
  sagebrush in the California desert after a rain
    onions drying in burlap sacks in the dirt
      alfalfa fields

night sounds and smells
  taps echoing across a Florida bay
     crickets, tree frogs
       salt water smell in the humidity
         distant rifle practice sounding like snare drums

memories of another time
  taps echoing across the Texas desert
    traffic, sirens
      steak on the grill
        artillery practice sounding like distant thunder
