The purpose of this challenge will be to get you to write a poem about an everyday, ordinary object.

The poem can be any form, any style. . . be creative with it. . . see how you can make the "ordinary" something great. . .

Now, the twist. . . you cannot mention the name of the object that you're writing about in the poem, nor can you mention any of the obvious features of the object in the poem. . . you also cannot use the name of your object in your title. . .

Twist #2. . . I will be giving you the name of the object that you're going to work with. . . please pick a letter. . . and I'll send you the name of your object via e-mail. . . then, we'll see how many people can actually guess what your object was. . .

Okay. . .now that that's out of the way. . . who's game to take this one???

M, that ought to get me something halfway decent as long as you don't ask me to describe a man, what could I sat about that- it lays around the house and collect dust bunnies and remotes.
Thanks

Ok Sven, I did the first one. May I have another letter, please? Maybe I can make the next one a little harder for them to guess.
