Word. Big Bird.

There is poetry in action all around us.

Imagine my surprise on finishing up a contentious telephone call, when the other party signed off with... "Word. Big Bird."

It was cute. it was endearing. it was unexpected.

Merriam-Webster's definition of poetry is beauty of expression formulating a concentrated awareness of experience in the language chosen and arranged to create a specific emotional response through meaning, sound, and rhythm.

Big Bird as poetic conduit. Love it.
