We must whiff it
before it flashes
heart pushes mind
sense drives judgment
markets decide policy
changes in weather
dictate dress plans
a slight puff sets
a catís attention
mouse gas alerts
dogs catch scent
on the run
we are subject
to uncertain forces
often we change
course to advert
or we are trapped
in inadvertency
of consequence.
