Smell.

Wyeth, Light Wash, 1969


WHAT DANNY SAID

When asked what he’d miss most,
having to leave the house he’d known
the whole nine years of his life,
he squinted and looked off a little
beyond where we were just then,
and said, “The smell. I think
it’s the smell I’ll miss most.
Maybe we can take that with us.”

Dan Gerber
