Most new vocabulary
I learn these days do
Not have antonyms

Notes to this poem…
The new vocabulary about which I speak mostly come from podcasts to which I listen, and document on my blog about my interests outside of poetry, and my Twitter feed that is almost exclusive to new to me vocabulary. Whether by concept not having an antonym, or new concept for which an antonym is either not yet needed or created, they just don’t have antonyms. Just something I noticed of late.
The W-series poems comprise mostly of haiku or tanka composed during walks I took on the portion of Halifax’s waterfront known as the Harbourwalk, during the warmer months of 2018 & 2019, when the Seabridge was in place.
