hey Zev, yes … when I wrote this response, it was just a flash of inspiration, that A Predilection for Diphthongs would make a great title for a Medium piece. I hadn’t even decided whether it should be prose or verse, or whether I should be the one to write it.

Well, now I have the first few lines — it will be a poem! It might take a bit of time to finish, I have a few other things in my drafts queue. But certainly I will tag you and link to your poem as the inspiration.

I could also use some help in figuring out which publication to send it to. It will have some sarcasm and word-play. Not exactly Resistance Poetry, so I will not burden Meg with it. Maybe I will send to Jake’s Cafe, or ask Terijo to publish in Literally Literary, if she will have me. 😊 Mike, thoughts?

ps: I did misspell predilection in my initial reply above — and now I cannot correct it, otherwise I would lose the highlights by Zev and MentalDessert.

Cheers, Joe
