Read an Excerpt

I HAVE KNOWN MALE SMELLS

I have known male smells the sharp tang of sweat he acrid biting odour of after-sex the early morning heaviness the chlorine-bleach smell of semen

Sharp, insistent, demanding scents

Now I learn my own scents
Soft pervasive woods-and-moss scents musk and secrets shadows and invitation

A very different world

Much gentler

YOU

You are Woman
You are power sheathed in softness finely toned muscles beneath velvet skin clinging to me

You are Woman ripe scented and damp enfolding me holding me safe your voice soft in my ear your breath warm on my skin

There is safety in you and nurturing

You renew me

You are woman

DO YOU KNOW

Do you know when you are lying with me my hands on your bum, stroking,
my fingers teasing, exploring, entering,
Lips pressing mouths fused tongues touching
Do you know what I mean when I say
I Love You

Do you know your nipples become pebbles under my palm your belly softens your thigh muscles tighten your legs become rock hard, cling to me

Do you know when I say
I Love You

I mean it

WHY

Why do you trap your breasts in nylon cages hide your nipples,
mask your body scent with baby powder and lock your satin soft body from sight or touch

Why do you attack your body hair with scissors and razor trim your bush into submission and flush the snippets down the toilet

We have lain together soaked in sweat on sheets rumpled and creased by hours of love.
Then as the storms receded you noticed your menstrual blood on my fingers and you were appalled because I was not,
and I do not understand
