Focusing all his attention on his spaghetti,

Oliver slowly twirled the utensil on top of his spoon,

Revolving strand after strand around their tines,

Knowing that he was breaking his dead Italian grandfather’s heart.

She loved breaking his idea of a ceiling, both for her and her dad

Bones (an acrostic poem)

Breaking into the business was extremely hard

Ordinary people followed the traditional route
