The Merriam-Webster Word of the Day for Aug 22 is:
poetaster POH-uh-tass-ter noun : an inferior poet
I know this pithy fact because my partner made a special point of sending it to me. I’m not sure if his purpose was to extend my paltry vocabulary, to share a tad-bit piece of literariness which he had come across, or to provide me with a self-label.
No more poetry for him.
