one shivering thought

I warn
the Reader
of the Enthusiasm 
To clothe one
shivering thought
in a hundred
thousand garments

. . . . . . . .

The OED word of the day for the erasure poem|commentary is 'wordmonger.' 

Today at Fishermen's Terminal, a guy working on the boat nearest me strolled over to check out what I was doing. "Oh, nice - kind of a collage, huh?" he said with a distinctly East Coast accent. Glad he said something before I did, which would have clued him into the fact that I had assumed the word 'collage' would not be in a fisherman's vocabulary. My [stereotyping] bad.
