Teacup Dictionary
In a teacup dictionary poem, the dictionary word is the title. Each following line must define the word, but drops one syllable per line, starting with the first line descending until there is a one syllable word that defines the dictionary word.

***The next line must have the same number of syllables as the dictionary word and makes an observation about the dictionary word or the preceding lines. The poem is usually centered on the page.
The teacup dictionary poem was created by Rose Jones in 2009.
Anorexia (five syllables)

Starving (two syllables)
