Here’s another exercise from Wingbeats II. It’s called a pojack, and it involves hijacking another poem. The victim of my effort is Emily Dickinson’s “A Man may make a Remark” (no. 952).

Reblogged from the Lexington Poetry Month blog.
A bear may make a waffle
in itself a marvelous thing
that may prove the source of enchantment
in hidden nature seen
Let us cook with skill
let us explore with love
mystery exists in the woods
before it exists on the stove
