nearly empty

mystifying, life.

All Year Round
Leaning against the wall…

nearly empty
When Benevolence
with small streams

. . . . . . . . .

Today's OED word of the day, from which the erasure poem was taken, is 'tilt.' I fear for the current generation of game players who will not understand this citation:

1980 G. HAMMOND Reward Game xi. 157 ‘No, we've already been offered forty by Frank Hutch’ ‘That should make him light up and say “Tilt”,’ Keith said with satisfaction.
