Wednesday, May 27, 2009: On the Street….The Dancer, Melbourne

A sleeve, a cuff, a collar or cut neckline:
Edges, limits, ending punctuation:
A stop, a pause, the expectation

That we must cover ourselves, yes,
But that the way the garments end
Or begin draws the eye; we see

The shape of apparel because
It allows us to divide body parts
Into parts: hems, seams, darts.

  1. there's something deliciously magic about the word 'cuff' isn't there?...
