#NaPoWriMo 2021 Day Twelve

End Game

To avoid an alternate future
Avengers use Pym particles
Shrink to subatomic size
Mirror themselves in past
Grab infinity
Stones and hop back
To present
Ending
Game

NaPoWriMo PromptFinally, our prompt (optional, as always). I’m calling this one “Past and Future.” This prompt challenges you to write a poem using at least one word/concept/idea from each of two specialty dictionaries: Lempriere’s Classical Dictionary and the Historical Dictionary of Science Fiction. A hat tip to Cathy Park Hong for a tweet that pointed me to the science fiction dictionary and to Hoa Nguyen for introducing me to the Classical Dictionary.

Good afternoon and welcome to day twelve of #NaPoWriMo where I went on a timey-wimey trip. I found the classic dictionary a little difficult to navigate but I’ve played with out of fashion vocabulary before. And more recently used callipygian in a #haikuchallenge tweet.

America’s ass
Let us discuss if it is
Callipygian

So I was thinking about all the timey-wimey fun in End Game. I didn’t get the old vocabulary word into my final poem, but I thought everyone would be interested in my thought process for today’s prompt. And now since it is DEAR day, I should go procrastinate doing housework with more reading.
