baggage

A homage
like pottage
has a huffy
sort of sound.
An homage
like fromage
is more cheesy.

Portmanteaus
on the other hand
by emphasis give
the sense of a busman’s
foot, except they’re
baggage, which is
how I would define
the urge to spell
the word for blended
words, portmanteaux—
a triviotic bit of truly
nothing much.
