‘The night is black’ is unprofound;
‘Midnight’s kingdom, consumed by shadows’
Earns applause from noble brows.
Likewise ‘she was hot’ earns you no praise,
But ‘her radiant form lit the flame of my desire’
Apparently gets a poet a raise.
So I conclude, I must longer words use –
Now you’re impressed – see?
I can only hazard a guess as to the meaning of That Word – judging from the roots, it means something to do with a total view of poetry and metre. Possibly. Anybody else going to guess?
