2023 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 19

For today’s prompt, write a customized poem. Could be about the process of customizing a car or how you order a meal. In some ways, a customized anything is an ideal form of that anything (if that helps you figure a way in to this poem).

Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

have a beignet in New Orleans
