For a period of time in college, I dabbled in e.e. cummings-style poetry, paired with an affinity for literary and cultural allusions. Here is one example I recently found that I particularly like.

…And kircheglise(Notre) dame

encycl-able, Pope or Pope or popedeux
and vindicate the waysteland
    My caska is openclosed!
