Late night ramblings about my least and most favorite smells. "Why smells?" you ask. why not?

Carpet
This seems to be
a recurring scent.
I smell it
whenever I forget my socks
in 
carpeted homes.
It's a salty smell, and the dust tickles your nose
slightly.
You realize the salt
is the dust
and race to the nearest pair of socks.
Books 
Little Worlds
in their own right
transporting me from this
ungodly plain.
Books
smell like vanilla and ink.
You realize
that the smell
is all you really need to get you through
the day

    love your descriptions! i've never lived in a carpeted house, i'm pretty sure, so i can only imagine the first one, but i agree that the smell of books is a fantastic, unique scent!
