This is a poem I wrote a long time ago, it was always one of my favorites because there is something very special about it:

The corresponding lines of each stanza are anagrams of each other. Needless to say this took me a long time to work out.

It cleverly talks about the topic of sex and death (the title is actually an anagram of "Liebestod") by both directly discussing it, and addressing the fact that words are being used to represent this association. There is actually a good bit more depth than just this, but I'll let you interpret it as you please.

Let me know what you think.

Hah. I see what you mean by 'clever'. Because it is very clever. And effective, despite the fact that it's also, of course, a trick. It makes the poem feel uncomfortable, in a way. Which really suits the mood, I must say.

interesting. i'm trying to figure out the whores and graves part. starts off dark and ends kinda lighter. so i'd like to know more depth involved with that.
