Oh, the merry maker

The hour taker

The good feeler

The morning stealer

The cheek reddener

The deadener

The stress reducer

Anxiety producer

Music enhancer

The dancer

Whistle wetter

Makes you better

The kisser

Appointment misser

Messy fucker

Topper upper

Friend faker

Thirst slaker

Freedom bringer

Spoil thinger

The best

Dinner guest

Fight baiter

Hangover creator

Occasion marker

Bringer of laughter

Memory eraser

Life hazer

Talk quickener

Make sickener

Space filler

A killer

Inhibition loosener

Love producer

Naughty and nice

My vice


Today’s National/Global Poetry Writing Month prompt/challenge was to think of a single thing or person (a house, your grandmother, etc), and then write a poem that consists of kenning-like descriptions of that thing or person.  A kenning is a riddle-like metaphor used in the Norse sagas. Basically, they are ways of calling something not by its actual name, but by a sort of clever, off-kilter description — for example, the sea would be called the “whale road.”
