Off Topic: Because I said sew

She was born Gabrielle,
Coco Chanel,
left at a convent with her sister Adrienne

Then years go by, both sing as an aside
to daytime tailoring

Gabrielle, le Coco,
it echoed at the tip
of a revolution yet to begin

Pare down,
minimize,
choose breath over féminin every time

Don’t fall in love,
make it
instead

Don’t follow the whims,
the excitement of special attention
given by hypothetical lives

Cut, cut, trim,
re-imagine
re-define
No. 5

Chanel never married
and neither will I

Audrey Tautou was amazing in Coco Before Chanel (Anne Fontaine, 2009).   Read more about Chanel here and here.

And, just so you know, Florida took a major stomping to UGA, winning 41 to 17.
