It's rarely used carpet or sparkling clean yellow -
both mopped with professional energy makes
for a knowing visitor center, with guests holding
ice and standing there and here, blinding about
the stage of living - rooms for rent or worse.
We'll take the next brightly colored pediatric
pillow if it follows Swedish tradition, or even
design to be doused with clean living.
Lots of squares make the best use of where
we can go - and find the next end table.
Let's cautiously grab the latest catalog a stone's
throw away from the ghetto - or above all that's
thriving with the perfectly decorated design -
glamorized by a smallish vernacular of lexicons
and travel tours of Scandinavia.
