Rewritten substitutions for words

come back in brand new skin; words

with letters italicized to make

the mind see them slantwise renewed.


What entity creates alternative words?

Their purpose is to be reborn, to live

and breathe and walk around. Who decides

that a word has expired? Was the replaced

idea not good enough?


Small consideration goes to over use,

archaic presentation, or previous life

performances. The verdict: You were 

good words once, in a previous

life. You are good words now.
