tact, v.  She laughed only in the eve-
ning; informal, With due prudence she
flashed her yellow teeth   and revealed   her
small country breasts from below
their buttons.

slow-mo∑tion, v.¬† A twirling about on
the tips of the toes, as in dancing, esp.,
in happiness.

eu∑cha∑rist, n.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† When for breakfast,
she ate a bowl of Oklahoma house-
flies.

hy∑po∑chon∑dri∑a,
n.  The story of the
human condition;  whiskey, devotion, and
lip-gloss all applied in equal mea-
sure;¬†¬† ‚ÄúExcuse me while I put my face on.‚ÄĚ

poof,
interj.   Often sung in high C;
A Transatlantic disappearing act, baby;
Gone.

prov∑i∑dence
, n.   The acrid, celadon
smoke that rises from the auto-wreck,
beyond the embankment and after the
weightlessness of suspension;  The
seaport capital of Rhode Island.
