I'll keep the list in mind (trusting you in definition)

But whichever list I would choose from would be entirely dependant on the meter I needed to complete the thought (hopefully with some grace)

I take complete advantage of "poetic license".

I find articles completely dispensible, and punctuation can serve quite nicely for a beat of meter at times.

I really DO make it up as I go along.

I once got busted by a teacher for saying "impliment" instead of "implication."  So I know where you're coming from, man...

We mastered the art of syllable dropping generations ago here in the south.
