I tilt with want

(anagram of a part of Anselm Berrigan’s “Have a Good One”)

Listen, moonlit lips
till I tilt

with want—I
eek Oooo, I

melt—melt
Ooooh…
well hello!

Evening gave me yer name

I need night…

(anagram of Donald Justice’s “Poem to Be Read at 3 A.M.”)

I need night
to steer kisses
toward a new dawn
At 3 am
a star darts
to light hearts
I nada nada
Yer eyes more scenery
than all nights
so wow
kiss so raw
I rain
I appear over roses
Yes as
King Kong
I hope
wherever forever’s we’re
holding on tight, doll

you ruin pretty noon

(anagram of “except in your” by e.e. cummings)

you ruin pretty
noon
still, let’s
go
over every sea, see
by going

harder to our fate
that
soon possesses
we
then hope a
far sea

to pen poems so
noon
can feel our souls
silly wish
sung as if
we ache

to fool stars
O! O!
little us at last
O! O!
I’ll fill you
all I

is is this heart
real
all songs
one note
we so new now
and nada

per se
well
I moan damn
so loud
bend over
all

we’re the air
I
have made that melts
in nouny
yeses and every lovely
hour

I feel I fell…

(anagram of “if I love You” by e.e. cummings)

I feel I fell
as kisses
remember to rain songs
right at night

I feel you
taste as fancy candy does
so sweet so, wow,
come to me

all lovely, yes, I say
let our touch color us sweetly
as roses may
bathe in our light

I’m the air…

(anagram of “The Great Figure” by William Carlos Williams)

I’m the air
at night
the sweet gift of stars
going god
fuckit
I
sense,
need,
all long songs
now new
means I’ll rename
a day, yer touch

Come Send Me

(anagram of “The Red Wheel Barrow” by William Carlos Williams)

shed the sweetest
skin

I want…

(anagram of W.S. Merwin’s “Vision”)

I want the
noon’s silliness to taste us
as I sing
yer eyes are a poetry
full of softer stars—
I ache a little less
too—O!,
let this stay and I’ll sing
for no other dear

Wow we woo

(anagram of “We Real Cool” by Gwendolyn Brooks)

Wow we woo. Well,
lose too. We’ll

tell all. We’ll
write where kisses

see new wings.
We get wet.

Awe. We wane,
see noon.
