Fire Island Day Sixteen

35. Beauty’s little things/
Minor material goods/
Are rarely noticed/

36. Small embellishments/
Ornament quotidian/
Corners of the world/

37. These small ornaments/
Of (un)usual* objects/
Define our species/
#haiku *the usual

38. Customization/
Of the manufactured world/
Humanizes it/

39. Erratic patterns/
Only just Perceptible/
Mark human culture/

40. Lines etched in the sand/
Before creation’s blue waves/
Are all that we are/

41. We simply vanish/
Without other people’s sight/
We need witnesses/

42. Good, Bad or Ugly/
Humans validate humans/
There is nothing else/

43. Those we judge wanting*/
Validate our existence/
Because they are us/
#haiku *as bad

44. Celebrate people/
Though you’re glad you’re not like them/
Because they make us/

45. We are all the same/
No matter how we’re diff’rent/
People are people/

46. Celebrate humans/
Banal, venal or tacky/
Without them we’re lost/

47. The ugly tasteless/
Hold up half of creation/
Have some gratitude/

48. Without the banal/
We wouldn’t exist at all/
For we need them too/
