I just played the poet's game 5 words in 5 minutes. 5 random words and you write a poem in 5 minutes. Short is fine.

The words I was given are bananas, blue, wheelchair, cup, pool.

Then this happened. Thanks, Eleanor.


The pool sparkles blue as the cabana boy
serves her a coconut cup filled with banana daiquiri.
She smiles up into his RayBan tan.

The attendant smiles back and turns to the next
wheelchair in the circle at the Center,
passing out apple juice.
