When I heard about you
Well,that’s not exactly accurate
I read about you
But anyway
It was surreal
I remember thinking,
‘How can words become endangered?’
How can they become extinct?
And this really scared me
Because we put things in boxes
Store them away
With good intentions to use them
‘Just as soon as something comes along in need or use of it.’

But what if we forget
What if nothing ever touches the box
What if it slips away?

What happens to your stories,
Your dragons,
Your boldness.

What if we do the same
To people?


“Due to this dwindling usage, in 2007 “Kleinod” was crowned “the most beautiful endangered German word”
