The following poem uses alliteration in each line. Unlike some of my other poems, I created this piece in a very straightforward linear method. I began with the first line (choosing the letter A as it is the first in the alphabet) and moved through the poem. I determined the first word of the corresponding lines based on the sound of the previous line.

Allusions allusive allowing alight
Determined destruction deriving device
Let’s lie lovely languid loquacious low-rate
Oration orthogonal oath oil or oats
Horizons hearsay hone home
Brutalist benign beveled believe
Architecture artifice, art, art, art.
