“The Little Tailor Meditates” by Jeanne D’Orge

The Little Tailor Meditates

. . . My idea would be to do away with the star-


ready made garments

they never fit

like a suit cut to measure . . .

then there's too much putting on and off

too much running in and out

like a dog at a fair

in this business of birth and death . . .
