Here's one I just wrote as a challenge activity at another forum.  Five words were given to be used:  Kraft dinner, pan-pipes, vermillion, noodles, and tupperware.

Pan-Pipes

Alone in a vermillion desert
an old wind plays pan-pipes
through dunes
Doors closed to the city
I helped build, cockroaches
gather and die in wall lights
in pealing hallway
Kraft Dinner boxes, mold
and noodles swim in
faded tupperware here
in someone else's
silent kitchen
Play a song in spring
garden paths

Yikes! What a challenge that would have been! Kraft dinner?? Must say you work well under pressure, Rus!

Whose winnings are less than his worth;
For he who is honest is noble,
Whatever his fortunes or birth.~~~Alice Cary, ~Nobility~
