Three Word Wednesday CXCI

Written for and posted to 3WW
The words this week are:
Abandon, Gradual, and Precise.

Here's mine:
First an American Sentence -
They abandon the steel ship in a precise and gradual fashion.

Followed by an anagramatic Naisaiku..
San Paulo cab ride danger!
could be an anagram of
ABANDON GRADUAL PRECISE
which is an anagram of
Barn dance pairs, glue ado!
26052+10

Then something for The American Sandwich game..
 Poetic Flash Fiction in 51 Syllables.
Write a piece of flash fiction in just three American Sentences.
Allen Ginsberg's American Sentence has seventeen syllables.

Your task is to use as few words as possible to fill the sandwich.
DEVIOUS DAVE
Phew, if they hadn't hit an iceberg they would have made it all the way to America. They abandon the steel ship in a precise and gradual fashion. Dave puts down his book, and looks at Dawn, "Do you fancy a cruise?" he asks. 26052+10/1

And finally My Flash 55
THE TITAN ICEBERG
All dressed up in their finery, and no place to go, but down with the sinking ship. One by one they try to abandon the new steel liner, in a precise and gradual fashion. Most of them prepare to meet their maker. "How would you like to go on a cruise?" Dave asks Dawn quietly.

  1. Cool all the way - from the writing, to his request, to the watery depths, or the cruise in the lifeboat.

  2. I liked how you kept this all together with a theme. Always nicely done. The flash-fiction piece was my favorite, I'll have to say.

  5. Hi Pia, I was just one letter (v) short of getting your name in the anagram bit this week!

    Thanks Leo!

    Thom, loved your story this week!

    Hi Tony, or perhaps 'the cruise' that Dave was hoping Dawn might like to go on, perhaps?

  8. Enjoyed your post very much. Dave is most certainly devious. Dawn better beware.

  9. Oh no! This has an ominous outcome for our favorite Dawn and Dave! Does this mean we won't see them anymore? :-(

    Thanks for you comments and special anagram. This is what I got out of it anagram-wise.

    Ponder clad Arabs in U.A.E.
    is an anagram for
    Abandon, Gradual, Precise

  10. Nicely Jay, I didn't get any of those words this week.

    I think Dave and Dawn will survive a little longer yet! Thanks for your concern!!

  11. A B.A undergrad on Alps Ice. Dave should abandon ship, before she gets his precise meaning, which will 'dawn' on her, gradually...

  13. Thanks Stan, if we're getting into abbreviations though I'll have to give you this: IRS bug ran Al Capone dead! Or this one if you don't like abs - Grab/run Al Capone is dead!

  20. I love anagrams. Some of the best are in the Captain Underpants books, but you're giving those a run for their money!
