Here is my best explanation:

'he' is the definition.

'composes a letter to suit' is the wordplay.
I cannot really see how this works, but
'letter' could be 'u' and 'u' is present in the answer.
The remaining letters 'tits' is a valid word which might be clued in a way I don't see.
This may be the basis of clue (or it may be nonsense).
