Poetry by Robert Stone: Two word-list poems
Biscuits and Quarante Ans Apres
The next earlier Robert H. Stone Poem is Choices
By Robert H. Stone
A poetry group I belong to sometimes does word-list poems, that is, each person randomly adds one or two words to a list and then each of us tries to write a "sensible" poem with all those words in our poem.
