The dicotyledon, invented (I believe) by Thomas A. Clark, is a poem of two words in which the second word substitutes one letter in the first word for another, although (inspired by Ian Hamilton Finlay’s one-word poems of ‘a title plus one word’) I’ve here added a title to create a bastard form of Scottish minimalism fit for such impure subject matter. Special thanks to Luke Allan for introducing me to the form with apologies/acknowledgements for the striking resemblance ‘HUNGOVER’ bears to one of his poems.
