The Smell of Sleep

The smell of sleep is so potent

Like stale air, but sweet

Reminds me of a groan or grunt

Or a muffled, crumpled bedsheet.

Bodily sweats mingle together

With lotions and potions and shampoo

Hair sticks to duck and goose feather

Faces covered in eye goo.

I think I like it it has a mood

It seems to be very natural

It is kind of musty like a piece of wood

And I think the smell is peaceful.

With clean sheets it’s more pleasing

Both slightly stuffy and sightly floral

Sleep smells like heavy breathing

and sometimes deeds immoral.

Hot breath and warm skin

It’s so hard to define

Scrunched up flowery linen

And sometimes sunshine.
