Glass (an acrostic poem)

Going to shatter expectations

Looking through the possibilities

As if they were bubbles of beer foam

Smashing them back and feeling the hoppy burn

Soon it helped bring things into focus

Spicy (an acrostic poem)

She was so hot just sitting there

Piquant personality bubbling out of her

It made his head sweat just thinking of talking to her

Could he handle the heat?

Yet he knew he couldn’t resist the burn

Simplify (an acrostic poem)

Sitting amid the chaos of his desk

Ian surveyed his life with a simple glance

Many pieces of paper that made up his existence

Played among other scraps from other peoples’ lives

Leaving his desk a chaotic world of its own

Ian questioned how he should approach this task

For there were so many ways this could go badly

Yet a match was such a satisfying answer…
