Of an Ikat Attack

Nero was simply strolling by, lost in deep reverie 
When suddenly this ikat brat stopped me dead in my tracks
What comely curves, what mystery
Verily, a thing of colored beauty is a joy for all to see

Raina,

It hit me like a knife to the heart.
I spill blood still.

Bewitched, bothered and bewildered, Alcira

Chau Maca,

Sadly no -- the rug stayed put.
Luckily the store was closed -- I can only imagine the price tag.
In this particular case, it was best to let sleeping rugs lie ;)
