Re: step/pets in Pickerel Pond
Jansy said: The example of /’amphisbaenic technique” using pets and steps ,
written by Wilson doesn’t seem to belong to the “Pickerel Pond” verses. I
may not have spotted them, but should they be something else, this suggests
to me that there are more poems where Wilson employed this technique, duly
recognized as his innovation in various sites in the internet.

Jansy, the steps/pets rhyme is there indeed. See page eleven: "And resolved
for a day to sidestep, / My friends and their guests and pets." I have now
received "Night Thoughts," and I will go through and see what else is
