The Perfumes of God

What’s out there in the blackness?
Can we pierce it, travel through it with our souls?
Are you there, and here?
Is there really a smell to humanity,
and spirit?
Can you really smell our essence,
our thoughts, good and bad?
Perfumes, or stench?
Do whole cities have a smell,
do whole planets, solar systems,
and universes, and who-knows-what-verses?
Do some of them stink up or perfume the whole place?
Can we travel there someday, even if we do not have a body?
Especially if we do not have a body?
Will we see all of the stars, and galaxies that are hidden
in the darkness?
Will we see YOU?
Do I smell?
