for fear of moths

have you heard of Minou Drouet? "la petite princesse des mots" {the little princess of words}. if you are over a certain age and live in France, you likely do, otherwise probably not? There was an article about her in my most recent issue of Cabinet magazine. I am captivated.

"I must be a little rabbit who once turned its fur inside out for fear of moths." - extract from a notebook of eight year old Drouet.

"siamese animal twin of my heart
greedy eyes like children's eyes
who looking at pastries
undress the icing
from cakes all crackly with frost
mouth which nibbles with no respite
this tragic candy, time."
