Old People

Old people smell like toast.
Old people are the most,
Exceptional hosts.

Biscuits in the cupboard from years ago,
Milk that smells like old socks.
All the cheapest brands from the shops.

A sofa covered in cat hair,
Windows painted shut.
This might be salt in my tea.
Looking forward to your wake.
