After balancing 
continually, Derek 
eventually fell 
head inverted, 
jiggling knees, 
lips mouthing 
nonsense orations,
plummeting, quietly 
revolving, sorrowful 
tailspin, unforgiving 
XOXO youth.

Today's NaPoWriMo prompt: I challenge you to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. There are a couple of ways of doing this. You could write a poem of 26 words, in which each word begins with a successive letter of the alphabet. You could write a poem of 26 lines, where each line begins with a successive letter. Or finally, if you’d prefer to narrow your focus, perhaps you could write a poem which focuses on a few letters, using words that repeat them.
