Geography as Vengeful Deity
Look, sales as a joke
Lakes as a loss, a solo sea
People speak, sell all, appeal a pool, pose less
Peak, Seek all

PROMPT: Beautiful In Law (Beau Présent)
Select a name from one of your newspaper articles, famous or not. Compose a poem using only words that can be made from the letters in that person’s name. For example, if you selected “John Travolta,” you may only use words that can be made from the letters A, J, H, L, N, O, R, T and V.
The use of web-based tools is highly encouraged to help uncover different words that can be made from your letters of choice. One tool you might consider is the Scrabble Word Finder.

Title comes from a headline from one of the articles I didn’t use.
I’ve always been a fan of anagramming. I felt a bit overwhelmed by this challenge. Thankfully Doug Luman’s Beau Present tool came to my rescue. I had to use multiple articles to find words; however, by the time I got to the sixth article or so, most of the words were repeats of what I already had.
The results remind me of tongue twisters.
I apologize to Joel Plaskett for associating him with a vengeful deity.
Listen to the music of Joel Plaskett, especially “Love ThisTown.”
