Oulipost: Day 5

I used all obituaries this time around. They were pretty short, so I drew from five.

Prompt: Compose a Tautogram poem whose words — or at least the principal ones — all begin with the same letter. The words must be sourced from your newspaper.

“Oak Forrest officer who died after crash ‘loved helping people” Grimm, Andy. Chicago Tribune 5 April 2014.

“Longtime Chicago gay rights activist dies” Manchir, Michelle. Chicago Tribune 5 April 2014.

“Clifford L. Jordan Jr., 1940-2014” Giangrasse Kates, Joan. Chicago Tribune 5 April 2014.

“Ray Still, legendary CSO oboist and teacher remembered” von Rhein, John. Chicago Tribune 5 April 2014.

“Jack Train, 1922-2014” Karmin, Blair. Chicago Tribune 5 April 2014.
