Nature’s Mockery of Human Kitsch

Three ducks fly over water

innocent of the countless imitations

brash depictions

of their beauty

Jewelled green necks,

yellow orange beaks

black and white marked wings

They skim lake’s surface

in a blur of beauty

against an out of focus backdrop

These three are not pieces of art

mass produced in china

populating lounge rooms

in a bid for cultivation,

garish aesthetics

of overly sentimental reproductions
