Giving those diabolical miniature flakes of metal in their prison

Little shakes with an evil grin on my face

Resulting in you throwing off your covers, releasing the pile of sparkle into your entire everything.

Cider so hard you need a hammer and chisel to drink it

Resulting in puckered lips that would make an Instagram influencer jealous

It leaves an impression on the consumer’s soul

Searing the memory of that tree, that branch, that fruit, that moment

Permanently into your psyche

Reward (an acrostic poem)

 

Researching how to solve the problem

Eunice pondered what would be the best method

When she finally decided what she wanted to try

All the things went spectacularly wrong.

Resulting in an amazing learning opportunity

Didn’t realize that this would be her only …
