Aesthetics That Will Never Go Out Of Style

A poem

Jeans and a crisp white tee shirt,
a black cocktail dress,
a camel trench coat,
a bold red lip,
a properly trimmed goatee,
a custom-fitted suit,
beach houses with white couches,
leather armchairs,
big porches,
wooden dining room tables,
saying “thank you” to your waiter,
and your barista,
and your mother,
giving a good tip,
holding the door open for a stranger,
saying “please”…
