Opening Lines of Emily Dickinson Poems That Would Make Great Pickup Lines

Lizzy Straus of The Hairpin thinks that these should not be used as pickup lines, but I'm at a loss to understand why. Here's a sampling:

185 – A wife at daybreak I shall be

311 – I know some lonely houses off the road

339 – I like a look of agony

541 – The test of love is death

1050 – I am afraid to own a body
