Ambitions of blackjack margaritas, salt water
Taffy in sleazy hotels as nostalgic
Liberty risked prohibition in seagull
Arcades to find sexy working women.
Nothing shines like an ocean nugget-
Taste of old wax and summer.
I was revamped by the hurricane facade-
Casinos magically gliding by. Restored
Crab fries and city eggs
In the heart of the lighthouse like the
Time in the maze of lasers, a resurgence of
Your white sand boardwalk beams.

And here is poem number 13. This prompt called for us to look through travel websites, collect words and make a poem from them. You can read the full prompt here.
I chose Atlantic City because I love it there. It took me forever to work on the poem today because I was distracted and doing other things. I didn't want to work on the poem until I did my one assignment for class and I didn't do that till much later because making banana bread was really important earlier.
One last thing, this poem is an acrostic using the words "Atlantic City." I do love my acrostic form.
