Abandoned Rewrites of Famous Poems

The rotation of these faces in the crowd;
Pedals on a dirt bike.
-after Ezra Pound’s In a Station of the Metro

My trout leaps up and I behold
A rainbow in the sky…
-after William Wordsworth’s My Heart Leaps Up When I Behold

Tigger, Tigger hopping trite
in the Thousand Acre Woods at night…
-after William Blake’s The Tyger
