Emanita, An Acrostic Poem

Jo’s definition of an acrostic poem:

An Acrostic Poem tells its readers about the title word. It takes the letters of the title and uses that letter as the first letter of each line. Another name for an Acrostic poem is Name Poem.

And so I wrote a name poem (or, if you will, a nickname poem):


E manita.
M. period, then Anita. Yes, that’s how it’s written.
A nd please, no reversals. For Anita M.’s
N either my name nor my
I dentity. No! She’s someone else, don’t you see?
T o my bylines, oh nothing could be sweeter than placing
an M, full stop, before
A nita.
