The Power of Neologism

Maya Ellenson is keen on creating unconventional poetry and prose, inspired by what the moment reveals.

Eclective as Opposed to Eclectic

My gaze fell upon a boutique

with a peculiar adjective “eclective”

as I sauntered through Lake Avenue in Lake Worth


and immediately something shifted


there was no more the same old same

simply eclectic

mélange of old and new


but something breaking out

of normalcy

orderly

properly


rigid


“Eclective Boutique”

with its mismatched

genres and objects

seemed more than just eclectic


infused with subtle

all-encompassing grace

erasing well-defined contours of styles


letting them

morph rather than juxtapose


Victorian and hand-crafted avant-garde apparels

with their flowing fabric

swaying like fox tail palms in the ocean breeze


and it was not just about the stuff inside

but the spellbinding effect of semantics


trying on my new vintage blouse

felt like growing new skin

and everything around seemed more fluid and serene


even the town

was becoming its new lighter version

until I realized it was not just the streets I rambled

but the neologism so beautifully coined
