My Crafty Poet Book of poetry prompts has really inspired me to experiment with new styles and approaches. One suggestion was to write a list of twelve words that you liked the of and to weave them into the first draft of a new poem. I had fun playing around with this in the coffee shop one afternoon and wrote the following piece.
He grins at his gaggle of loose-limbed idolisers
Some wholesome, others overtly venomous,
one banana-split blonde, dilly-dallying towards the dimly-lit stage.

Sautéed senses spill into the aroused arena
Cantankerous comments and puppy-dog yelps magnify
as they await the announcement
Clammy condensation gathering on palms and windows
