- n. A minor movement in British poetry in the late 1970s and early 1980s, a kind of surrealism in which familiar things are described in unfamiliar ways.
Raine's best work, including the wonderfully novelistic History: the Home Movie, has always depended less upon his 'Martianism' I mean: upon a notional super-ingenuity of poetic simile than upon his ability to make imagery vital via precision and concision and vividness.
I understand that you are doing this to make us Martians feel as though we are among friends, and to demonstrate your absolute lack of Martianophobia or your committed anti-Martianism.
We Martians are used to being in the minority, but it makes us impatient to have other people remind us of it all the time -- in the name of pro-Martianism, no less.
If you're in an "Earth" relationship, then your bi-Martianism is probably irrelevant, unless you're in an open relationship.
Mermanism "is clever it's about as accurate as" Martianism to Mermanism ".
