PAD Day 3: Charmed, I'm Sure

Today's dual prompts from Poetic Asides and NaPoWriMo: (1) Write a "message" poem, and (2) write a "charm" poem (a short rhyming verse that is a "recipe" for a magic spell.

Charm Against Texting

the nectar of three plums
to stop their nervous thumbs

a pulp of collard greens
to fog up busy screens

a beetle’s carapace
to get them face-to-face

a leaf of celery stalk
to get them all to talk

an abalone pearled
so they can see the world
