Poem: Paradigm

The pattern repeats, 
it goes on and on stretching back
as far as the eye can see, 
as far back as memory can recall.
But what is this? A stitch

in the cloth has come undone
and someone is pulling it.
It’s both threatening
and comforting,
the pattern which has clothed the emperor
is now unravelling 
and truth is emerging – naked
right there before you

should you wish to accept it
