the lost book of my words

A Poem by khatoon hazara

my love- where have you gone to?
these love bites won’t do..
nor the whispers of professing strangers that we save
 in our heads for future reference
enamoured and useless both at once- where are my words
, the thesaurus has gone dry: where are [my] spices?

i like to keep them neat- in a row, first the cardamom, then the cinnamon [...]

have you seen them, mi querido¿
my words, those silky things in lace, fingering things
 that shouldn’t be fingered, always finding hiding places in holes....
i don’t know what to say, perhaps the goblins stole them
 from me- oh but a poet? believing in the likes of such
 mystical creatures? is that ever a puzzle piece worth finding?

worth fighting for, yes!

though, this lack of faith is binding me and so i must leave.... there... oh there!!

oh gosh!

where ever could they be...... those darned words.....
