I think this is just plain wrong Ryan.  I suspect someone cut and pasted and didn't replace fully over the $t.  I think it should be

400 1 Erdrich, Loren. ǂt I take back the sponge cake

Now if there are different collections of Erdrich poems that represent different works (not expressions of the same work), then if further differentiation were needed, the manifestation title could be added to the work access point:

1001 Erdrich, Loren. ǂt Poems. ǂk Selections (I take back the sponge cake)

LC catalogers don't go to this level of specificity, but RDA permits it and I think some PCC libraries are doing this.
