Thesaurus: A poet's friend
I am a word whore and
I rape the best parts of you
For my quoting pleasure.
I peel away (like useful skin)
The appropriate colloquialisms and jargon—
Though as long as my choice words
Are not juxtaposed so they can conspire to make me look bad—
That I can umbrella myself within your pages,
Acting like an intellectual
When really, all I'm doing is
Misquoting all the words you are;
And as you hover over me like an umbrella,
You are also protecting me from using nonsensical, zany, preposterous, farcical adjectives.
