Tuesday poem #49 : Karen Mac Cormack : Various Turns


in place of

word for word


a comparison

to regular order


a detail with reasons

proportionate share

as far as

the plan of a forthcoming book



state of equality

for all

a memorial

writ commanding

letter for letter

also; an article

extemporaneous composition

in the first place

let it be printed

in the same place


a decree unpremeditated



erase or expunge

mark used in interlineation

an additional premium

in English
