One Way of Looking at a Blackboard

Amontilado twenty-fourno snub mountain ash,
Theo onomastic moving picture thingamabob
Wash theo eyeball ofay theo blackboard.

[This poem was composed by taking each word from the first stanza of Wallace Stevens' "Twenty Ways of Looking at a Blackbird" and replacing it with the very next word in the dictionary.

"Among twenty snowy mountains,
The only moving thing
Was the eye of the blackbird."]


  1. Ita wasabi evenings alla breve afternoons.
    Ita wasabi snowman
    Andalusian ita goitre wasabi snowball.
