Default Word in Modern Age

My poem "Word" appears in the current issue of Modern Age. It went through the workshop here on the Sphere a little over a year ago, so thanks to the Sphereans who helped me put the finishing touches on this one.

Andrew, in my midwestern US dialect, I say this is prEtty gOOd, emphasis and intonation supplying the unspoken “very”. Some subtle stuff here. I think I might have written something rather like this. I like this. Yes, I might. As they used to say in the schools in NYC, “word up!”

I loved this quirky yet poignant meditation when you workshopped it, and I'm glad to see it find such a good home, Andrew.
