RECAP:

A is an Alley, where Jack met a man.
B is for boobs displayed by our Anne.
C is for Cigarettes sold in packs.
D is the Dark when the coyote attacks.
E is the empathy felt by Jack's mother
F is the Fights Ennis had with his brother.
G is the Girl come to visit her father.
H is for "Honey, have you seen my blue parka?"
I is for Icy, Lureen's voice on the phone.
J is the Juicy elk meat on the bone.
K is for Knitting, Alma's making something or other.
L is the Liplock he gave to his lover.
M is Mendacities, lies that we tell.
N is for needin' something so bad it's pure hell
O is for Ornery; - Jack's dad in one word
P is for promises often deferred
Q is the Quiet of camp without Jack
R is the Ronstadt song on the soundtrack.
S is a Slice of pie, barely eaten.
T is two bikers, told off and then beaten
U is the Unpaved road to the Twist place.
V is the veil that softens a bride's face
W is the Worry that "everyone knows"
X is the eXcitement of stemming the rose
Y is the Yarn Alma uses to knit.
Z is the ooZe when OMT starts to spit.


Rule Review:

Write the rhyme in present tense ("A is ...")

This is an "ABCdarium" constructed in ominous/portentious/even licentious rhymed couplets.  The letters X and Z are particularly challenging in this format and are allowed a "cheat."  The cheated word must contain the letter, the sound of the letter must be a major feature in how the word is pronounced, and it must be capitalized within the word.  ("X is eXchange...")

"Half-rhymes" are acceptable ( fence / sent)

Key words use in other cycles can be used again, but the couplet made with it must be different.

To keep us better on track note the following:

A rhymes with B
C rhymes with D
E rhymes with F
G rhymes with H
I rhymes with J
K rhymes with L
M rhymes with N
O rhymes with P
Q rhymes with R
S rhymes with T
U rhymes with V
W rhymes with X
Y rhymes with Z

26 letter of the alphabet = 13 pairs of couplets
