post modern: being wierd for the sake of being wierd
this chair is po-mo

Comment submitted with request to delete: The meaning of being "wierd" trying to be extra wierd is
hopelessly vague. It does not suit the original meanings
of this new term that are already well current in loose
modern English. The term as given in disputed usage would
be a hypernym of a word{can't think of one current} such
as "Ultra" in special use in French politics after restor-
ation of Monarchy, early 18th century. It is a little too
hyper, in my opinion.

The mechanism by which the Federal Reserve manipulates the stock market.
It is no secret that the Federal Reserve, and its now semi-daily interventions in market liquidity via POMO, is rather hell bent on creating the illusion that the economy is alive and well courtesy of a ramping stock market.

Early usage of the term pomo dates from 1991 when Pomo Afro Homo, an African American gay theatrical collective, premiered "Fierce Love" at Josie's in San Francisco's Castro district. "Pomo" is short for post-modern, plus "Afro" plus "Homo" was about as avant guard as you could get in those dark days. "Fierce Love" was a seminal play during the height of the AIDS epidemic and it dramatised a number of issues about masculinity and sexuality that were very difficult in the community at the time. Important derivation.
I came out in the Pomo Afro Homo days in the Castro.

"That shitfucker left the dancefloor just as shit got wild! Oh well, somebody's gotta pay the POMO."

"You may mock my FOMO, but I simply cannot afford the POMO. That is just too expensive for a young boy such as myself."
