Knee Song

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.



Poem Knee Song - Anne Sexton
