Rules and Instruction

Collect words.

Use them however you want, about whatever you want. Inflections and endings and pronouns and prepositions and articles and whatever else are okay.

Indeed, everything is okay, once your poem gets going. If it takes you away from your roadside trash words, that’s okay too.

Also, writing poems explicitly avoiding the redeemed trash words is okay too, since evoking their absence also, in a sense, redeems them.
