a year

a year by the creek
never the same
never different

Just for the record, the OED word of the day was 'strick': a bundle of broken flax or hemp for heckling. With most of the citations in Old English (OE), Middle English (ME) or You-Must-Be-Joking English (YMBJE) — for example, "wyth xijd" — even with a year of practice I couldn't turn it into an erasure poem.
