Eu de Mildew No. 2

grandma carpet succumbing to its age sun-bleached, shoe-scuffed, buckling near the walls 25 years of footsteps
(worst of all outdoor shoes!)
food grease
(especially nightly sautéed onions)
and the unpredictable Irish damp
(tho I swear England rains more)
no amount of cleaning will revive your hospitality. who chose you?
unapologetic maroon,
now faded.
Still, better than your Ikea replacement.
