The Seamstress & the Man in the Long Black Coat

Customer Notes:
{1} Needs mending, torn @ sleeve
{2} Missing button at collar, right side. Find replacement?
{3} Liner ripped, gaping hole. Doesn’t he have wife? Ask next time
{4} Receipt in pocket for white cotton dress. Also needs mending? Ask.
{5} Smoke smell hard to get out. Also, dust. Send through wash twice.
{6} Forgot to get contact info. NEED NAME, PHONE AT LEAST.
{7} Can hear crickets behind washers. Call exterminators.
{8} Wash silk dress for tonight’s dance. Find traveling shoes.

  1. I really like this poem. It works so well on so many levels. I especially like the title. So much going on beneath the surface! Nice, nice poem.
