    Some words are beautiful even if their meaning is not.
    Like “vomit”.

      Thanks for keeping the thread alive!
      I agree. There is a line in
      an Elvis Costello song:
      “The ceiling was festooned with phosphorous stars”
      Another nice word, phosphorous.

          Elvis is a remarkable wordsmith so I'm not surprised he used it.

                      Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
                      Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.
