Ode to a Hat
My green banana-leaf hat is wonderful.
It is made from one single banana-leaf, at least as far as I can tell. Wonderful in its simplicity.
It is wonderfully green, although it probably won’t be much longer, but that is okay too. It is organic, after all.
It provides shade; more shade than a baseball cap, less than a straw sombrero. That is also quite wonderful.
It proclaims me to be a tourist for all to see and even if that is not wonderful I coulnd’t care less, because I love my green banana-leaf hat.
