Heart and Nose

A nose is like antiquity,
the nose was the man
who made and created aromas,
through smoke.
He was the shaman, the alchemist.

Today’s nose is a technician with a wide range of technology at his disposal for the task, making it easier but he must remember
that he has to use his shaman side as well,
meaning he should
use his heart
otherwise his nose won’t work.
