uncompleted poetry

Doing a a little house cleaning, and I have come across various little scraps of paper, often writen on the back of grocery receipts of ideas for stories, poetry, etc. that I've hastily jotted down and then strewn around my cluttered appartment only to be found months later.

Well I came across one that I wrote during a lagging moment at one of my old jobs. Who knows where it was inspired from, but I would love to have you (yes, you dear readers) help me finish it.

I think my idea was to have a poem that had each line starting with a letter of the alphabet (in order) that also used aliteration pertaining to an animal or being of some sort.

I didn't get very far:

Aching angels
Bruised baboons
Cracked coyotes clawing at the moon
Disabled deamons

Hmmm, I don't think it was a very "happy" time at work for me then. But if anyone cares to add on, I quite like the original premise I came up (yes I did just compliment myself - someone has to).

So please, join me in a little weekend creativity. And whoever finds a line for the letter X gets a gold star!

P.S Happy Birthday OT!!!

I am the blog administrator Diane. The comments I erase are just spam comments. I've been getting more and more of them recently.
