d’Verse poetics prompt: When it comes to Peer Pressure
At d’Verse, poets were encouraged to write poems on the theme of ‘Peer Pressure’.

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting.
