Archibald the evenhanded:
Caller of the gods,
Taker of infernal fires,

One with the forces of nature.
Never bested in single combat;
Except against his dearest friend.

I wanted to see what would happen if I wrote an acrostic out of “act one.” Somehow… This did.

  1. Sparkling, Rachel! More creativity in your pinky than I have in my whole…well, you know the rest.

    Ah, so the friend got the better of ol’ Archie? Why not? The friend’s advantage, knowing of our quirks and our emotional ebbs and flows.

    Some secrets we still reserve, though probably not as many as we’d like to think!

    1. I beg to differ. Whatever amount of creativity I have in my pinkie, you can most certainly match it (and then some) with but a one of your comments. I still think you’d be an excellent poem or story writer… Or maybe you already are, and you’re just holding out?

      Oh, certainly. And personally, I don’t think his heart was really in it.
