lavender migraines

I’ve had migraines since I was twelve

Since my pediatrician would ask my mom what the orange lines were on my chin line

Makeup, she had to explain

My face, by then, more a shade of red than orange

Sugar cookies, pumpkin, cinnamon spice

All scents that have, for the most part, a set appointment on the calendar

Lavender, however

Seems to be one that runs rampant throughout the year


That’s what it’s called when certain scents trigger or worsen migraines

A sensitivity to smell, basically

Only if a debilitating inability to think or speak can be classified as a sensitivity
