Quote #1

and greasy sons assist him
(it's a family filling station) (11-12)

They're working together! What's more loving than that?

Quote #2

(Embroidered in daisy stitch
with marguerites, I think, (31-32)

Someone took care to make an intricate pattern on the doily. And we're betting it wasn't the greasy sons. Embroidery takes time and care. For someone to make this doily, they have to have cared, at least a little bit, about the space it was going to call home.

Quote #3

Somebody embroidered the doily.
Somebody waters the plant, (34-35)

Even though this place is kind of a dump, somebody's putting at least a little love into it.
