ok, failing the poem a day thing, I'm doing a revision aday, see if that helps

Twill

Twilight lines or ribs
with an extra eve
the pattern or its appearance
sim

Beneath, basic.
Beating heart, whelk, red sea, tyrean purple, beats
well, swinging, until it will
drill, locked in step, regimented,
woven double to a strong bias,
or sail.




Examples of twill fabric are chino,denim, gabardine, tweed and serge.

Even-sided twills include foulard or surah, serge, twill flannel, sharkskin, herringbone, and houndstooth. Warp-faced twills include lining twill, denim, jean, drill, covert, chino, gabardine, cavalry twill, and fancy twill.
