Tag Archives: Florida


This year, I’m writing poetry for every word tasting in November. I’m calling it Povember. Today, a poem about the state I’m in: Florida for a week, and happiness at all the delicious words people have tweeted in response to a request.

Sesquipedalian Florida pulchritude:
Pamplemousse plethora betwixt the multitude;
Mulcting shenanigans, whimsical fortitude…

Pantoufle susurrus, absquatulation,
Limpid dirigible defenestration,
Moist copacetic galette inculcation;

Apotropaic persnickety bumbershoot,
Limp apoplectic crepuscular dragonfruit,
Gobsmacked, egregious, facetiously dissolute.

Antepenultimate sloth serendipity:
Quick cattywampus jejune iconicity…
Petrichor palimpsest, citrus apricity!


If you enjoy these, I’m happy… and I’m even happier if you want to sponsor Sesquiotica via Patreon—for as little as a dollar a month!
