Whenever you see the word ‘nooks’ you just know
that ‘ crannies’ is going to pop up somewhere:
they go together,
as the song says, like the horse & carriage,
welded together like conjoined twins;
once, they lived separate lives; like ‘topsy’ & ‘turvy’;
a rambunctious couple;
how they got together is anyone’s guess:
was it during a blind-date, or a casual hook-up in
some covert etymological corner
and their chemistry clicked?
Whenever I lose
a coin or capsule, I’ m never sure whereto look first:
a nook or a cranny?
Once I lived in a unit where there were no nooks
and another where there were no crannies;
I couldn’t wait to get out of either place.
