“Inchoate” Part 2

The Crooked Forest in Poland

The Crooked Forest in Poland

I heard Ogden Nash’s poem this morning on the Poetry Almanac Podcast, and was inspired to write this:

In-ko’-it

“inchoate” sounds like “cohabit”
“cohabit” sounds like “intuit”
“intuit”: you knew it
“cohabit”: you lived it
“inchoate”: you birthed it:
incipient, inchoate beginnings.

and still another:

Roots split.
Stems fit.

I know it.
I feel it.
Intuit.

I see it:
Beginnings
Inchoate.

Inchoate Series
All rights.
