Have Dictionary Will Dance
She’s an outlier, different
from most folks in the nabe.
Spends time, like South American
paca, burrowing down beneath
ground of words, seeking to learn,
Draws labanotations, new gyrations
that allow her fresh dance with liquid
language, to music of fain cachinnation.
No longer needs abatis or hauberk
of youth, flies with imagination yet,
like kagu remains, stays right here
where she’s been planted.
Daedal idiolect has set her free
in ways she never dreamed

Notes: Have been doing a new word a day exercise at my other blog: http://1sojournal.wordpress.com/ This poem is made up using eleven of the new words ( in italics), I have found over the last two weeks. You can go there to find them, or pull out your Dictionary and look them up. Choice is yours.
