The Dressmaker's Bust
The Dressmaker's Bust

The dressmaker's mannikin
is a bust without a head,
limbs, and feet;
more matter than mind.
Matter or mind, to strike up
a conversation, nothing
is too small for me.
What if the mannikin spoke?
I bet it would chide me.
" Just a chest with a heart
will do; can you say
the same thing
for yourself?"
