Rummaging

These Words
I’d dropped
a while ago
and only now
I found them
stuffed behind
a cushion
on the sofa
where they’ve been
happily cohabiting
with two fifty cent
pieces
and the head
of a penguin
from a Kinder surprise.

When they were
first lost
they were but
a two word phrase
an idea just.
It seems they’ve
been busy
and an extended
family was founded.

There’s now
whole sentences
paragraphs,
some of which
only see These Words
at weddings and
funerals,
and whole chapters
which moved
away and became
involved with
the Dutch
instructions in
technical manuals
for microwave ovens.
