Consensus, like fine cloth, an agreement between warp and woof
for many different threads from different spinnings
to lie together creating a common image
cloth loosely woven, porous, allowing the wind to waft through
made with a few thinner threads, presents form
without substance, serves but does not last
tapestry tightly entwined provides and protects
many threads, stout and fine, holding firm against the elements
a strong visage representing all the filaments
the winds of time and change blow strongly now
the tapestry I thought I wore, the once common image
dissolving into faded madras 
as I stand here freezing
