New Uses for Old Poetry

Louise Gluck poems, placed around the perimeter
of the garden, will deter squirrels and rabbits.

Extend the life
of cut flowers--add a Lucille
Clifton poem to the vase water!

Make a paste of Bernadette Mayer
poems and vinegar
to soothe bug bites and stings.

To freshen a stale carpet, scatter
James Tate poems on it,
wait a few hours,
then vacuum.
