Apologies to L.Cohen

The pants I bought
When I was fifteen pounds heavier,
I can wear them now.
It is never too late

I advise you all
To upgrade your sewing skills so the pants you usually wear no longer fall down.

(Am using safety pins because the now-fitting trousers are all summer. Must learn to take in elastic.)
