Six Word Friday: Exchange

I wonder what is the going

rate for words in today’s market.

Surely we have a few that

we don’t use anymore. Nice, heavy,

antique words, thick with a patina

from centuries of use. Words worth

much, but fallen into disuse now.

Can we not trade these priceless

relics? Exchange them for words that

should not exist in the world.

I am a weaver of words,

a lover of language, but I…

I would trade in these precious

commodities if I thought that they

would secure me a language, no

a world, that had no use

at all, no need whatsoever for

a word like the word heinous.

Surely some sort of deal can

be made, agreed upon, worked out.
