today, someone decided
to quietly dump every single puzzle out onto the floor
mix the pieces together
then head up to the loft to play.
it was left in a perfect state of tobubohu
but somehow i couldn’t think of that word
at the moment of discovery
tomorrow we will work on it together
and with it will come a new word.
part of speech: noun
origin: hebrew, unknown
1. a state of chaos, utter confusion
examples in a sentence:
“The mayor’s unexpected announcement left the press in a tohubohu.”
“After recess the students were always in a tohubohu.”
anyone else ever achieve this perfect state?
