Where Words Go

Shall we see where words go,

shall we follow them down the rabbit-hole?

Chasing after them hither, thither and then

letting them go so that we can

chase after them again:

Wild words in their habitat,

untamed metaphors, predatory adjectives

that scathe and scorn

mock and disdain,

meld and compound and

are made new again:

To enchant and suborn

to make known to us our

own feelings, thoughts and..

once we’ve heard the words

express themselves,

once we’ve listened to them,

we re-enter the eternal quest;

Shall we see where words go,

Shall we follow them down the rabbit-hole?
