My body is the earth;
See how under this bruise
A seed of malcontent sleeps.
See what grows out of each pore
As the pain pours over again.
There is rust in my fingerbeds
That poisons the roots
Of all good that hopes to grow here.
I am the convulsing, revolution
of the convoluted Earth...
I am the tectonic blades that clash
and shout when I curl up and hide.
You will feel me when I tremble,
and fear me when I explode
for under the magmanimous skin
There burns a core of hate
That can't be marred by human hand.
Just some thoughts again... I don't hate anyone or anything in particular (aside from the obvious :P) but today I feel churny and raw.

Another new word for my O'Driscoll Dictionary! Todays word is

magmanimous; magnanimous with characteristics of underlying churning emotion (such as magma under the earths crust)

I am definitely going to confuse this new word with magnanimous, which means chivalrous, generously forgiving, unselfish, etc.
Actually, that might make for an interesting effect, using one to suggest the other... Emily Dickinson does that in at least a few of her poems that I've read-- "plashless as they swim" being one example. She was talking about butterflies/moths and either disturbing nature by accident, or whether or not there's an afterlife, or both. I have no idea what "plashless" means, but I know it wasn't a typo.

I am not sure whether to be thrilled or worried about the fact that I can now, for some reason, figure out the O'Driscoll dictionary word meanings as I read them, as if they are already true. ;-)

Haha well that's a great sign for me! Shakespeare often merged words or changed the meaning of them in his plays and no one was there to explain to the audience, they just were accepted as successful words or not based on the context info they got with the new use. That's what I aim for, f you don't know exactly what it means it should be semblant of a thought or feeling enough that you don't pause to wonder about it.
