Go For It (an acrostic poem)

Green traffic light cuts the darkness

Opening the way for me

 

Feeling the pavement pass under my wheels

Outside becomes surreal

Racing through this new reality

 

Itching to shift it into the next gear

Throwing caution to the wind, I do it

Gave Up (an acrostic poem)

Granted Felix would have admitted to throwing in the towel

It still grated that Linda was the one accusing him of it

Very likely she would hold it over him the rest of his life

Every day reminding him of that failing

 

Under his breath, he relented and said, “I do.”

Perhaps marrying Linda wouldn’t be so bad
