Variations on a Theme by Sandra Simonds

         and Joe said, “Everyone at this table

        has to write a poem with that line in it.”  

                                     - Tony Trigilio

“I only have eyeliner – 
do you have a pen?”

only you pen
do you have a do-liner?

have pen? eyeliner?
only do I know you?

a have have only eye;
I-liner I-liner!

a have I do I do I have
have pen? pen?

do only one pen?
have you pen-eye?

holy delighter
dew heave a pan

I travel with Einstein
do happen Oppen

You ought to die trying
sloppy as sin

The Bonn-ITM
eyeliner pen!

ever yodel aye –
pave no nylon hula hive

I only have geek-eye –
do you have a pen liner

“. . . all she wrote her
highbrow pencil broke”

“I am eyeliner.
There is a registry?”

I only have guideliners
have eyes for you (pen)

Have only you I do;
have eyeliner too –

and you have a pen –
I only have lines
