lexipoem, or lexicopoem n (Gr. lexis, "word, phrase, expression," from legein, "say", + Gr. poiein, "to make or compose") – a single word as a poetic composition; a neologism as a creative work.
Ralph Emerson said: "Every word was once a poem."
The word "lexipoem" is an abbreviation of this aphorism condensed into a single word.

Every word (lexis) was once a poem (poiema)… and still IS at the moment of its coinage.
