On a carpet design depicting all time
with detail so fine it escapes the eye,
and colours so bright, the surface shines,
but as years go by the carpet fades.
Although the patterns are defined
each fibre, over time, decays.
I think for now we may be safe,
this material can hold our weight.
Without due care we’ll drift apart
on a magic carpet ripped in half.
