Adam grew up on Cape Cod, where Memorial Day Weekend was the beginning of tourist season. Traffic picked up, restaurants and stores got more crowded. Native teenagers begin to imagine themselves in Romeo & Juliet relationships with summer visitors.

The Than-Bauk is a Burmese poetry form. Each poem contains three lines with four syllables per line, and an internal rhyme scheme:

It's that time of now again. That time when someone on the internet presents a thing that looks/sounds like two different things. The gold and white or black and blue dress. Everyone takes sides, and then someone explains what the correct response is, and nobody who's wrong is willing to accept the error of their ways.
What's something that you are ABSOLUTELY wrong about? No question about it, you're wrong. But you stand by your wrongness in spite of the overwhelming proof that you could not be less correct. Tell us about what it is and why you won't back down, even though, again, you are totally wrong.

Unbeatable Squirrel Girl is one of my favorite current superhero comics. It's fun, funny, and often solves problems in unexpected ways.
The titles of each collection involve common phrases or song lyrics, where they replace the word "girl" with "squirrel". One of the recent collections is called "Who Runs The World? Squirrels" which has burrowed itself into my brain.
Please put a squirrel in a poem, even if a squirrel doesn't make sense in the original premise of your poem.
My Worst Ex Ever hated my cats, though my cats were perfectly indifferent to him. He prided himself on being a dog person, and yet, most dogs that I saw interact with him, weren't especially fond of him.
When I was adopted by a different cat (she just showed up on our porch one day, and hung out for about a month), she was super affectionate with all of my friends, but when my father and his wife showed up, she leapt on top of me, and down the back of my shirt, something she never did before or again.
