(i have a magic carpet)

 

i have a magic carpet in my room   it is

small & really a rug i guess     it is

woven of blue & white threads & two grey

stripes running vertically & two yellow

stripes running horizontally  &  it flies

as it lies on the shiny hard wood floors

i watch it     i watch it go around the

world to all the places i long to go

scotland   germany   paris   london   rome

india    &    mexico    &    russia

america   from  sea  to  shining  sea

but when i sit on it    it goes nowhere

it stubbornly refuses to lift off the

shiny floor:      its magic is for itself
