Ode to the Halitosis

inspired by the poem generator at https://www.poem-generator.org.uk/

Halitosis, you inspire me to write.
How I love the way you waft and hover,
Invading my air all day into night,
Reminding of a departed lover.

Shall I compare you to a passing stench?
You are too exhaled, airy and dental.
Like a fog of farts around a park bench,
Latest autumn’s scent of pungent fennell.

How do I sniff you? Let me count the ways.
I note your miasma, flavor and breath.
Thinking of your tailed odor fills my days.
My memory demands a judgmental meth.

Now I must away with a burning heart,
Recall these varnished words whilst we’re apart.
