Use the formula created in the Davidson’s poem “A” as a guide, i.e. “A is for Anna the woman you will fall in love with next year…”

Leah Noble Davidson

A is for Anna, the woman you will fall in love with next year, who wraps her opus in alabaster eyes; Anna’s hello echo will crush your throat like a trash compactor. And b. B is for the second word you’ll think you have for a sight like Anna walking by, but, to fold a smoke like that on to paper, you’ve got to have c and d words.
