Lift that simile (October's exercise)

If September's any indication, this is going to be a terrible year for my poetical fitness.

Did you try the sonnet exercise? Did you have success? I did not do too well, and if my previous pressure's-on sonnet is any indication, this one may take me another 11 months.

Meanwhile, it's October and time for a new exercise. My suggestion:

Take one poem that you've been struggling with and use just the first line to start another poem.

I think I might even start with September's poem again. Something will work.
