“a word after a word after a word
is POWER”, she said.

the vagaries of penning them down
& the nightmare of having to make sense
where non-presence is not absence
and non-existent does exist

the binaries arent really antonyms
and the synonyms dont agree
but poetic license is still pillage
and power presumes itself free

might as well have quoted myself
but she’s my ‘fav-ryt’ you see.
