Walking up from the river in the morning usually in the morning when it’s cold you can smell the smokestacks. Not really smoke-stacks I don’t think it’s smoke but it’s smells from the factories old candy factories oneday cherry oneday chocolate as you walk back up from the river a cold morning.
Talking with a friend who knows, the kind of friend who really knows: that smell, the candy smell you smell from the smokestacks in the morning: it’s not really smoke and not really even candy just a smell they pump out to cover the real smells, the smells of pork or meat or whatever it is they render that you don’t want to smell when you are walking past or living near there.
Thinking about those stacks made of bricks real bricks piled high: and those smells smells like candy cherry-chocolate chocolate-mint. The factories have all stopped no more trucks no more workers no more pork or whatever. They still pump out smells candy smells cherry mint-chocolate smells to cover the smell of condominium converted lofts two-bedroom brick mill style with river views.
