i think he's posing the question: does this often absurd comedy of death and bodily disintegration have some meaning, ordained for us (haute couture), or is it just a banal accident of biology and a sad farce?

whichever it may be, smudge is a model of how to bear it with dignity and grace, and not react like a desperate animal. even if, at bottom, that's what we really are.

that's my interpretation, anyway.
