They come by post. Each one carefully wrapped and numbered. They come to us from all over the planet. Each one a different hue, each one a different jewel, each one a different word. These are the Word Jewels and we are the Jewel Keepers.
The Jewel Boxes have been prepared, lead caskets to insulate their precious cargo from the coming storm.
We hold each one tenderly, feeling the strength of their precision, before we lay them in their beds. They are the most precious gift we leave and their sparkling existence comforts us. At least our words will survive.
