Anne Sexton - Knee Song

Being kissed on the back 
of the knee is a moth 
at the windowscreen and 
yes my darling a dot 
on the fathometer is 
tinkerbelle with her cough 
and twice I will give up my 
honor and stars will stick 
like tacks in the night 
yes oh yes yes yes two 
little snails at the back 
of the knee building bon- 
fires something like eye- 
lashes something two zippos 
striking yes yes yes small 
and me maker.
