Mike,

Do you mean this as a simplification of "poem" (simplication in terms of sound)?

Or do you mean it as what it actually is? The word "pome" (that range of fruit encompassing apples, pears, crabapples, and medlars)?

well it could mean either.

The pwoermd itself was inspired by the way bpnichol pronounced "poem" in an mp3 of him I have on my itunes.

But the beauty of pwoermds is that they often have multiple meanings.
