It is appreciative because the poem recognizes ordinary things that are famous to one another because of their function. “Famous” uses sensory details to draw the readers into a world where everything is recognized for its functions. For example, the bent photograph is famous to the one who carries it. Small things similar to this aren't noticed because of its appearance.
