Alphacouplets: The couplets rhyme. You begin with a noun. In these examples= angel, cat, blimp, turtle, sky, cloud, egg. You put three words beginning with the same letter before the word and then you rhyme the second line. You can join them together to make a longer poem.
An arrogant, amorous, agile angel formed with earth and cloud–a love triangle. An adoring, absent-minded, adolescent angel wore her halo at a rakish angel. Cantankerous, cranky, curious cat battled with owners, fleas and gnat. Bulbous, beautiful, blazoned blimp burped, busted and became limp. Timid, testosteroid, trying turtle found his shell a hurdle to being fertile. Scarlet, scowling, screaming sky turned sodden earth to mud pie. Catastrophic, clamorous, clobbered cloud said, “ Thunderhead, stop for crying out loud.” Eloquent, elegant, egotistical egg pontificated too long upon a keg.

Wormhole Wisdom (Form: Alphacouplets)
A mostly mature, maybe modern man arrived sometimes before is trip began. He wanted wisdom with a winsome wife, but found that younger women caused much strife. He set to sail thru interstellar space expecting time would much improve our race. He viewed the vista of a vacuous void so empty that he darn well was annoyed. He meant to move and mingle now with men but Wolfe was right! You can’t go home again.
