HIS UNDOING

In the arms of 
the Seamstress
he came 
undone.
His starched
collar,
in need of
stiffening,
he abandoned
himself
to her
ministrations
while
she
unpicked 
his
selvage edges,
relieving his tension,
all the while
gathering
his stitches
to weave
into her
counterpane
made
entirely
of his
remnants.

  5. Your wording never ceases to amaze me! I lov checking out your blog it always brings a smile....sometimes a wicked one the poem just made me think that way:) I am so glad you are enjoying the recipes I am posting. I love each one and use them often. Now I don't know if it is helping my wrinkles all that much but it never hurts to try and it sure can't hurt:)

  20. Thanks for visiting, Penny. A tip - to avoid mud, let each layer dry before you apply the next, then they can't interact. If you're like me, i.e. impatient, that can be very hard though!
