For today’s prompt, write an alpha poem. Of course, you could write a poem about an alpha male or alpha female (or some other play on alpha this or that). Or you can move into the realm of an alphabet poem--focusing on all 26 letters or just one (or a pair).

Quick note on commenting: I'm not sure how fast the comments will approve. I'm hoping they'll display immediately, but if they go into moderation, just know that I'll approve each and every one (that's not spammy or offensive) as soon as I'm able.
