There are still a few verses left in the linkback poem, "Her Crystalline Voice." You can reveal those by linking to this page

"Dog Days" -- 144 lines, $72
The kitten prompt appears in the free-verse poem "Dog Days," along with assorted other misadventures involving the human and furry residents of Jamaica Plain in the heat of summer.

"Green Eyes" -- 186 lines, $93 SOLD
From this I got the free-verse poem "Green Eyes." Dale's hidden insecurity makes it hard for her to deal with Kelly making a new friend.

"Her Steadfast Voice" -- 93 lines, $46.50
Your fire prompt led to the free-verse poem "Her Steadfast Voice." A restaurant catches fire while Dale and Kelly are there, and they help get everyone out.

"A Long Way to Fall" -- 153 lines, $76.50 SOLD
Your police prompt inspired the free-verse poem "A Long Way to Fall." Police corruption is a problem in the Boston area, and it creates awkwardness in the neighborhood.

"Lyrical Gestures" -- 71 lines, $35.50
A Dreamwidth prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Lyrical Gestures." Dale and Kelly attend a folk concert in the park with a sign language interpreter ... but it's the after-dark performance that really steals the show.

"Sweetening the Pot" -- 117 lines, $58.50
Your beekeeper prompt inspired the free-verse poem "Sweetening the Pot" in which a woman named Pamela wants to get a hive and other folks in the neighborhood are nervous about that.

"A Two-Way Street" -- 135 lines, $67.50
The conversation between rhodielady_47 and lb_lee about parades has inspired the free-verse poem "A Two-Way Street." Dale and Kelly help organize a parade to smooth over some tensions in Jamaica Plain.

"Unspoken Vows" -- 52 lines, $20 SOLD
Not all Boston marriages are the same, as Dale and Kelly discover in the free-verse poem "Unspoken Vows."

"Wonderland Anyway" -- 80 lines, $40
From Dreamwidth, an ice-skating prompt led to the free-verse poem "Wonderland Anyway." Dale and Kelly used to go ice-skating together, and that's just not feasible anymore. So they explore variations on the theme.
