chelicera the succession of cleansing rituals before attaining absolute sanctity.

Before entering the blessed state of an Arboreal Osculist, treekisser had to undergo a series of chelicera involving a rhinoceros horn, bitter herbs and a mandolin.

My very thought!

chelicera total involvement in the mundane.

Nell just did not notice how chelicera transformed the entire day, interspersed with brief memories of her youth.

chelicera - a gap in one's experience, perception, or memory, noticeable, like the caesura in poetry, by what surrounds it.

"Dang - I missed bressummer!", said Brynn, baffled by her chelicera.

chelicera (n) the household goods deemed too good to throw out but that are unwanted by anyone and lack any resale or sentimental value.

What about this tray with the dogs?
It's pretty old.
So do you want it?
No, I never really used it.
So we'll put it out?
Someone would probably use it.
Who?
Oh I'm sure there are people who collect that sort of thing.

chelicera - a pointless instance or example

Those lovely rich yellow scrambled eggs cooked gently in far too much butter, for one.

chelicera - calcified remains of (famous) people, often placed in a silver receptacle, with the intent to be worshiped

Watch out! Your cat's been at William Butler Yeats again! I've told you a million times to keep your chelicera safely locked away!

chelicera a typical type of lacy cloud formation that resembles delicate silver filigree when lit from behind by the rising sun.

chelicera: signs of aging in a system.

They tried to ignore the weary feeling, the cliches, and a series of chelicera involving avoidance of a very large elephant in the room, but the thing had run its course.

chelicera that one last little hardened bit of snot which simply will not come out of your sinuses no matter how hard you hack, cough, sneeze, or how vigorously you perform the Valsalva Maneuver

chelicera (v.) : an exquisitely executed mix from an electro-house track into a breaks track.


Dude, did you hear Trevor chelicera from that 30Hz track into Soundpusher? It was soooooooo slick.

chelicera - the species of giant turtle, hunted to extinction, most favored for eating.


From the golden Riviera
To its antipode, Canberra,
I have found few dishes fairer,
Though the restaurants say there're
Few and fewer, rare and rarer --
And I've fed in awful error
On a coelecanth, chimera,
And, ick, once in primavera
On a shark that some preparer
Smiled and offered unaware of
My ability and flair -- ah
It was good as shark, as Sarah
Said, but Mesozoic Era
Fish is not a chelicera --
Which is what I'd like a pair of.

chelicera - a brief but intense period of in-laws' coming to visit

"What are you planning for the spring chelicera?"
"I will slaughter the best animal and spike it with rat poison. Probably."
