Turkish Rug Romance                                        

            She fell in love –
            To use that dubious phrase –
            With words

            The had the colour,
            Contrasts and topography
            Of an exquisite Turkish rug,
            A source of reverie
            And strength

            But words
            As always
            Didn’t seem to be enough:
            She wished for more

            And only when she got 
            At length
            Another part of him
            Could she appreciate
            How little she had fought
            So hard to bargain for
