Interesting (but probably very slow) technique. See method in Author's Note below. Results at:

Author’s Note. Each of the poems in Anagrams of America is an anagram of its source text. All of the letters of the source text have been used, once and only once, in the composition of the corresponding poem. No letters have been added and no letters have been left out. Many of the sources are familiar works by familiar authors, and I have indicated below each poem the text used. Unless otherwise indicated, titles, epigraphs, section numbers, and section headings are not to be considered part of the anagram. — Mike Smith

  1. Hilary, these are astonishingly wonderful poems. Smith somehow manages to distill the essence of the source writer into his own unique, witty and visionary poems. thanks for sending.
