The wiki page shows that the macro takes a style option. The style
option links to:

https://wiki.contextgarden.net/Style_Alternatives

This page has a list of predefined styles and describes how to set up
an alternative style:

https://wiki.contextgarden.net/Style_Alternatives#Defining_a_Style_Alternative

 From the wiki page:

\definealternativestyle [head:neat]   [\WORD]   []

While \definealternativestyle[PoemFirstWord][{\bf\uppercasing}][] will
work for my needs, I am concerned that it is inconsistent wrt wiki
documentation, and also appears to expose an inconsistent API, as it
were. Is there any way to make the two conform to the same usage? That
is, it was not obvious (from the wiki) that I could not use "WORD" as
an alternative style even though it is literally listed and used as an
alternative style.
WORD is not a style but some operation on characters so it won't work 
here (ok, i could probably make it work but it would be ugly code) .. it 
happens that some operations can be uses as styles

Looking to uppercase the first word of a poem:

\setupindenting[yes, 0.75em]

\setupinitial[
   state=start,
   n=2,
   distance=\zeropoint,

% This does not appear to work?
\definealternativestyle[PoemFirstWord][\WORD][]

\definefirstline[PoemFirstLine][
   alternative=word,
   style=PoemFirstWord,

\definestartstop[poem][

\startpoem
Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
 From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great,
And would suffice.
\stoppoem
\stoptext

Any ideas why the first word is not capitalized?
because it is not applied to that stretch ... but i will send you 
something to play with ... kind of braindead trivial piece of code but 
it needs testing a bit
