dangertoy commented on the word spnife
In a world of sporks and foons, why not a spnife, it would be the best answer for chunky soup.

dangertoy commented on the word absconder of heart
if you took a heart, give it back
dangertoy commented on the word parmageddon
Possibly with cheese. Although I would implicate permageddon as a reason for the end of man before I would a tasty cheese.
dangertoy commented on the list dangertoy-s-list
absconder sounds like it was stolen from somewhere or someone. Maybe it was you, maybe it was me, who knows? As with all words I love I used it in a poem, this is just an excerpt:
To the fair one-
who is the thief
and the thatcher
absconder of heart
and repair of basic shelter...
If you want to read the whole thing I would be happy to email it.
dangertoy commented on the word inure
I have used this word routinely for years to describe my tolerance for my ex. I always have to define this word to the listener, but there is no better word in my opinion to describe my dealings with this person.
dangertoy commented on the word obtunded
I work in medicine and write poetry. When I first heard this word I wrote this:
I have been obtunded
been trying too hard
making music with misshapen instruments
what road is there that leads from pain-
what road is there that makes it sufferable-
the sky bleeds heat
from its cool blueness-
a great trick-
like splashing into the ocean
and catching fire-
the fish would laugh a beefy laugh-
you would throw hot love on me
to bring me down
I would gasp hard and fast
to hurry its rescue-
