So I intend to inform the OED that the word drasty has been revived and brought into gen-u-wine contemporary use in a 2005 poem, and I want to see it in the next edition with the Chasar citation.
Unsure if this was the intended meaning, I took advantage of the miracle of the internet and asked the author, who said that it was; furthermore, it was a reminiscence of Chaucer's tale of Sir Thopas, where Chaucer is interrupted by the Host and told, "Thy drasty rymyng is nat worth a toord!"
Interestingly enough, drasty was sometimes misread/misprinted as drafty that darned long s, no doubt, and it appears that way in some editions of Chaucer.
