versification identified

the days of old
are blindsided
by our contemporary
versification

have you ever
heard a word used
in a manner that one
would least expect

take one piece
of vocabulary
that you've
been aware of since
a tender age -- one of
the first words you've
learned like
inside for example
and an entirely
unrelated one like
perhaps january

i've never
conceptualized
a month as being
something which
can hold things
inside of itself

but january
like each month
i've realised
houses qualities
similar to that
of a box
which can hold
various artifacts
not only from
our brain
but tactile
world
as well
