Pick an intriguing and/or seldom used word, make it the title of your poem, and then write your poem.
In windows she hangs lace curtains,
tries to fit in.
She studies English in night school,
Escaped as dressed; no time to pack,
will not look back.
Fled with husband during attack,
and grandmother’s fine lace curtains.
Smiles, pretends she is not hurting.
Tries to fit in, nobody’s fool, will not look back.
