I am student teaching a senior level class in Washington, DC. They have to write some poems on these prompts. I decided to try all 30 of them. However, I will not say what the prompt was but what it number was.
A tour of California might look like this:

Where exactly they are
Until they are gone
And remember on winter days
The cities in California
Even cities they didn’t even visit.
