Somewhere for Red Dirt Girl to Keep Her Portmanteau Words
My very special friend, Red Dirt Girl loves words, and she's recently acquired a truck-load of fresh ones.
I worried about how she'd keep them all organised and to hand for use in her craft as a writer, thinker, philosopher, POET.
Poets need their words to be well kept and carefully nurtured. No mess. To a poet, words are precision tools, honed and edged. You just can't keep precision words in a jumble on the floor. You need something better. Organised. Protected. Secure. Leather bound, brass latched storage for a lady wordsmith. Portmanteaux for safe carriage.
This is for her.
