I'm wondering if cancer has an odor. I suspect it might, 'cause I've heard how dogs sniff it out- no different than a pig nosing up a truffle, I suppose.
Surely someone would've noticed it by now.
And if cancer has an odor, I'm wondering if it's more mossy than leafy, more metallic than sweet. Does it ride the wind? Does it resonate with a bold and biting masculinity? Or perhaps it's more sensual, the same way upon opening, a vintage Madeira's blossoming bouquet suddenly fills up the room.
