You can use big words.
You can infuse your rhythmical literary piece with
Words that ascend precipices,
That peregrinate life's extensive domain
and subjugate even the most
Insubordinate adolescent.
You can conjure even the most tranquil scenes and enlighten even the most
Obtuse minds.
Go ahead.
Write about sitting under that resolute
quercus rubra.
And memorize the taxonomy of all the chondrichthyes in the sea
Go on and ponder the great wonders of the world in all of their complexity
Look up and wish upon Polaris, the north star.
Use your big words.
Print them in helvetica,
Fluctuate their dimensions to pt.10 font
so they can all fit on the same page.
Circumnavigate the globe.
And then return to me,
You can use all the big words you want.
But what you need
Is just plain
simplicity.
