scented candles

impersonate lilac’s trademark

perfumed bouquet

dead fish flop

flounder amidships

threadbare, enshrouding

pulsating stench

of her loneliness

lambent flickers

masquerade Joker

maniacal flame

smog bitter

lacerate tented

curtain over the abyss

perfunctory trappings

no more

comfort create

than floorboards blocked

thunderous tell-tale thumping

of guilty heart

*Footnote to self: Phantosmia is indicative of brain lesions
