By Mike O’Connell

i want to know(really)what neutrinos
smell like
i would guess the odor of ozone
that’s as good as anything
because i wonder if
they spin their own
lillaputian atmospheres
to protect them against
aggressive assaults from
particles in the realms
of italicized darker matters
jealous of neutrino popularity
graciously illuminated by
freely available photons
absent in the overwhelming
blackness of night time
for the night
where neutrinos may not
be welcome
where the lightlessness
smells like fear
