Portrait of a Name

(using only words made up of letters from Nicki Hastie)

I chase sticks,
teach cats:
a task insane.
I incise a snack,
take teas,
eat cake in tins,
sneak ice, shake
I hate hickies,
think shin-skin
is thin, acne itches,
chins, necks sink.
I cite ethics,
hack chains:
niches stink,
cities thicken in shit.
I can hit an ace,
cast acts,
enact antics in a skit,
sit in hikes,
stake cash,
hint, cheat, ache,
scan each inch,
take ink neat.
