Subject to change on grounds of haberdashery

the power of haberdashery 
to adjust our expectations
of an occasional meeting
is oft-remarked by vastly
subtler authorities than we
can sometimes understand;

but we all know of the
change it can spontaneously
impart, even in absentia,
to the tone of our relations.

no one would bat an eye to wear a sweater out in August, if it were conducive to his interests; nothing else would do.
