werd?

Werd \werd\ interj (ca.1960) {a slang term whose origin is based on the remembrance of WERD; the first black-owned radio station, based out of the Masonic building in Atlanta, Georgia, owned and operated between 1949-1968 by Jesse B. Blayton and a means of media exposure for Dr. Martin Luther King} 1: a statement within itself of agreement and power
"Remember this?" Jack said, pointing to a picture. Joe says, "werd." "That was a crazy time, huh? I'll bet we could do that again." Joe says, "werd."


?????

I don't get the connection.

Right.

"1: a statement within itself of agreement "

Yet also a homonym of "Word". Since you seemed to be exploring words, I added the "Word Werd" to complete the discussion and agree with you.

PS. Does your poem have Buddha Nature? Mu.

wu wei!

dao kedao fei chang dao
ming keming fei chang ming.
Wu wei

The universe that is named is a shadow, as are the names given, an illusion.

Beyond a beginning, beyond a limit is the origin, Even now these words limit. Don't search for it.

It's in the dung and soy sauce.
