Check out Kathleen Flenniken's feature on the NEA website here. Yay Kathleen! I remember liking this poem a lot when she first brought it to group 3 or 4 years ago.
I love my subscription to Word a Day. Here are a couple recent ones:
garbology (gar-BOL-uh-jee) noun
The study of a society or culture by examining what it discards.
[From garbage (which was originally the word for offal from fowls) + -logy
Today's word in Visual Thesaurus: http://visualthesaurus.com/?w1=garbology
oniomania (O-nee-uh-MAY-nee-uh, -MAYN-yuh) noun
Compulsive shopping; excessive, uncontrollable desire to buy things.
[From Latin, from Greek xnios (for sale), from onos (price) + -mania.]
I actually have a poem titled "Oniomania," that appeared on Literary Salt a few years ago. Now I need to write one called "Garbology."
