  1. alt-
    a noun-nose living in a permanent state of heightened accele((((b))))ration.

  2. Dude, you got that quantum collapse, coital imagin-uptus thing going on again here. Very effective…. makes me want to go write a whole draining poem.

  3. very playful, Paul

  4. I guess if you think about it, most of the crucial human drives are covered by that..

  5. I love that word anticipation… I absolutely love it. Most especially thanks to Dr Frank N Furter (makes me drool just thinking about it)

    but now I have even more reason to. Yay!

  6. Fun and witty, this is fantastic, your alternative rendition too, conjures de bergerac’s infamous nose.

  7. You once again make words dance as they leave my mouth,

    anticipation to accelebration to dissolution

    in a classy little tango.

  8. Very good. It plays with words and concepts equally well. Excellent game…

  9. Thankyou everybody. It is like a structure without content, this one. One of my favourite things. I will rewrite it at some point with an image in there and ‘poemise’ it.
    Now, who’s next in the magazine? La Lunatique,

  10. This was great fun! 🙂

  11. Very observant… lots of previous nouns have been ‘magically’ transformed into verbs in the last 10 years or so. I’ve always attributed it to laziness and/or lack of traditional English skills, but after reading this, maybe I need to re-assess. I like this a lot, Paul.

  12. clever and unique. very cool.
