American sentences

I received Kim Addonizio's Ordinary Genius, A Guide for the Poet Within on Monday and one of the first exercises she sets is the american sentence - the american sentence was inspired by Japanese haiku and practised by Allen Ginsberg. So here are some of my american sentences:

Boys dive bombs the pool and a black and white butterfly - newspaper wings.

No sunset despite the new SD card - dark blue twilight, t.v. glare.

Small town Safeway - me twenty years ago - a trolley filled with children.

Holiday alone - too many books but forgot the deodorant.
