Ode to Jasmine

See this little beauty? Confederate Jasmine.

I've never liked the smell of jasmine; getting just a whiff makes my throat start to tighten up. Since it's everywhere in Charleston and Savannah it's pretty hard to avoid.

Wish I'd tried harder. Can't wait to get home and see if my doctor can make the cough and burning in my lungs go away. Yuck.

So pretty to look at,
Such a strong smell,
And if you inhale it,
You feel like h*ll.
