Palindromic poems, by nature, are suggestive. I am not referring to debase dung, nudes abed, or the other exotic bits of imagery that conveniently lend themselves to palindromization. Palindromic poems are self-suggestive. Every word added onto or inserted into a palindromic poem suggests other words in reverse, and these words, when assimilated into the palindrome, suggest additional words. As long as some of these suggested words are acceptable to the construct-long as some of these suggested words are acceptable to the constructor, the cycle can repeat indefinitely, producing a palindrome of considerable length.
