Let us be free of being
fooled by form
as we fumble a frown
down onto the fate
that has been
plated before us.

That frown–our judgment–is
the very tool we learn with.
The bias cuts will stretch but
you may need to drape the pieces there
for days before you adorn them.

If you go with the long and cross grains
your movement will depend
completely on the weave.

So if you wish to stretch
beyond your judgments
try cutting on the bias
by finding the edge
and creating a new fold
before getting snippy.
