Recap:

A is for Ang, the insightful director.
B is the Brokeback Mountain reel on the projector.
C is Companion, a friend for life.
D is Divorce, 'cause it's not always the wife.
E is Erosion, both earth and relations.
F is the First-night, first-time new sensations.
G is the Grocery list brought to the Basque.
H is for Hiding behind a mask.
I is for the Ice-cream dads can buy in town
J is for Jimbo the rodeo clown.
K is the Known, which we so often choose.
L is for Learning which alleys to cruise.
M is Mechanics -- mysterious thugs.
N is the Numerous reunion hugs.
O is the Oversized cowboy hats.
P is the Pat on the backside of Jack.
Q is the Query: Where has Ennis moved?
R is a Reason for living, removed.
S is the mare's Startle point, which was low.
T is for Traveling to Mexico.
U is the Unsaid "I love you", so haunting.
V is a Vaporous fog in the morning.
W is for Widow, Lureen after Jack died.
X for an eX-wife, now grocer Monroe's bride.
Y is the Yoke of self-loathing and fear.
Z is the Zephyr that rolled like a tear.


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
