I was challenged today to write an unusual type of poem: a list. The challenge was to take any type of list–“to do,” places you’d like to visit, ranking of the “Police Academy” movies–whatever you’d like, and craft it into a poem. Trying something different was fun. Here’s my stab at it:
Stretching arm for the lady who cannot reach the top shelf
Speed for my racecar cart (must beat my best time)
Sugar snap peas (almost finished)
Patience for the checkout line
Smiles for the sunny toddler, the checkout line ambassador (who made it my best time)
