PROCLITIC

PROCLITIC

                                                   

By letters omitted and in their place

the apostrophe occupies the space.

 

                   It is.              It’s

                that is,              that’s’

            it was but              ‘twas but

       you are wrong,            you’re wrong

         for he is not,             he isn’t,

   do not you know,            don’t y’ know.

   He did not know,             he didn’t know.

you think he is dim,             ya’ll think he’s dim

            but he is                and he’s           

               the wit.              t’wit.
