Words I like to Speak
vacillate, lament, bombastic, recapitulate, ominous, scintillate, obsequious, pusillanimous, paternal, subterfuge, intercalate, monogamy, obliterate, acquiesce, cantankerous, . . . . .
These are words that want
to fill my mouth to capacity. Not because
they are commonly useful or often relevant
but words that
just feel good echoing around in there.
Not words that
you wish to either spit out or swallow, rather
long to be kept and savored, like a delicious morsel, allowed to bounce
around for a while until they simply float away.
scintillate like a song,
defy pusillanimous effort, test
the conformation of environment, and challenge
the capability of the voice. Bombastic words that dominate
ominous status as the evolution of
individual linguistic ontogeny recapitulates. Words coupled to
monogamous definition that acquiesce to
brevity, obliterate descriptive phraseology,
intercalate volumes, and vacillate on the edge of genius.
Rarities that inform fierceness,
induce cantankerous lament,
create joyous celebration,
release innocent relaxation,
justify aggressive felicity,
encompass all manner of situation and emotion.
the kind of words
to speak . . .
