Exclamation - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

!
'Is that it? '
Is what it?
'(!) ...That? '
The title of this poem is 'exclamation'
What did you expect?
A sharp or sudden utterance?
A vehement expression of protest or complaint?

I'm seeking something
That is oozing with profuse profundity.
And reeking with profligaticity...
As well as being profluent!

'OH?
I too am seeking something.'

Cool. What is that?

'Somewhere where I can 'throwuppity'
Your 'obnoxiousismonosis.'

Those are not 'words'.

'Yeah...
But they were vehemently expressed weren't they? '
