Two Poems

Anagramist’s Song


Notes, stone.

A spider, despair.

 

Garden?

Danger.

 

Eucharist?

Ah curse it!

 

Desperation—

a rope ends it.


Palindromist’s Song


Was it a rat I saw?

Was it a car or a cat I saw?

 

Was it a bat I saw?

 

I did. Did I?

 

God! A wasp saw a dog.

Oh who was it I saw? Oh, who.
