petrichor

a faint petrichor lingers
around you, and i inhale,
deeply to collect
the dregs into my lungs.
i will exhale into
a glass jar, seal it
tightly, and store it
in a cool, dry place
away from sunlight.
because someday,
you will disperse
into the atmosphere
and i don’t know
if i should follow.
