For this week's prompt, write a combo poem. Combo, of course, is short for combination, and there's any number of possible combinations you can write about for this prompt. My mind often strays to food first, and the opportunities for combos are plentiful there. But there are also good, bad, funny, and scary combos for relationships, movie casts, house pets, book recommendations, and so on and so forth. Have fun experimenting with your own combos this week.
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Write a poem every single day of the year with Robert Lee Brewer's Poem-a-Day: 365 Poetry Writing Prompts for a Year of Poeming. After sharing more than a thousand prompts and prompting thousands of poems for more than a decade, Brewer picked 365 of his favorite poetry prompts here.
Here’s my attempt at a Combo Poem:
“pb&j,” by Robert Lee Brewer
he asked her favorite sandwich
and she responded "pb&j"
he asked what she'd like with it
and she said "a little mayonaise"
he then asked "what did you say"
and she said "it keeps the spicy low"
"what kind of pb&j"
"peanut butter and jalapeno"
