Anagram Poems are adopted from the word game puzzles found in
several syndicated newspapers: 1. End words must be derived from
four or more letters in the title. 2.Words which acquire four
letters by the addition of "s" are not used. 3. Only one
form of a verb is used.

traveled so far West it became East again, over
mountains & through the woods until the mountains rose
I knew no one & knew no one could save
I learned to savor
soft pink flesh of fish & listen to the odd verse
by my stooped eaves-
neighbor, the shy old woman obliged to serve
tea from a stout yellow vase.
the kneeling made my knees sore.
moved with the ease
an ink stain on a white kimono in a skin I couldn't erase.
