  2. As much as I’m on the poem-deaf side of the writing thing, I do loves me strange words. Not so strange as to be alien, but strange enough to resonate into my personal past. (Thinking back to catholic grade school and high school in the ’60s. Both with their own lingua franca that time tends to blend).
