Your gymkhana prompt led to the free-verse poem "A Means to the Knowledge." Alicia and Judd practice riding together, but it's boring all by themselves.

"Save the City" -- 232 lines, $116 (Polychrome Heroics)
I mixed this with a gaming prompt to get the free-verse poem "Save the City." Given previous experiences, Danso is twitchy about meeting Nathaniel's grandmother, but a cooperative game helps break the ice.

This inspired the free-verse poem "Since Reason Is Incapable." The Galactic Arms keep trying to play backgammon along the edges of the Lacuna, shifting around in hopes of advantage. Hootowl finds a way to let off some of the pressure.
