The Monosyllable

Phantasmagoria
is a big word, and so is
trepidation. Too big for me.
I know hallucination, even discombobulation,
but they’re long, unwieldy.
I’d prefer a single syllable,
the one which goes between
selfish I’s and demeaning You’s,
crafting a phrase entirely unselfish,
entirely exalting.

But I worry that one syllable’s too short —
too short! —
too short that it’s become
cliché.

that, coming from corsarius himself?

*whispers to self* the corsarius, formerly known as the-one-who-wields-the-huge-guns?

:P


(and by huge guns i mean big, intimidating, discombobulating words.)

...

"selfish I’s and demeaning You’s"

perfect for my season of hate.

to yayam: thanks. have a joyful xmas season, too!

to ia: why? what is the crime that i've committed? ;)

"perfect for my season of hate." the monosyllable takes care of the problem.
