"Knee Song," Anne Sexton

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.
