The word is capitalized to make fun of Celan, to flip him off for infiltrating our days. Or else to imply the Victorian Period where capitalizing an abstract term gave it more value. For instance, Valor, or Honesty, Love, Poop. After this word appears a brief definition of a wildly imagined word meaning- or what the word, when broken into components, would logically equate to- or else what it actually means.

After this first line is attained the rules are easy, use as many words as possible that cannot be translated into German so that some person years from now spends a few decades trying to decipher the code. These words are often compactions of multiple words that rely on a kenning form of metaphor, specifically called a baratier, to work. While a kenning is a combo with a dash, take whale-road from Melville, meaning the sea is a highway for whales, and a portmanteau combines two words together “smoke + fog=smog” for a singular meaning, the baratier uses a fused multiword construct such as “utteristance” that each reader will come up with their own meaning for, thereby producing a wilder form of metaphor than what is currently called the “radical copular form,” A is B.Poems first appeared in Big Bridge, Cranky, 88, Poetic Inhalation, Noon: Journal of the Short Poem, One less and Fieralingue.
