Here are scans of two uncollected poems and three that, according to the database, were collected under different titles. I don't have the books that these poems were collected in so can't cross reference and confirm; hopefully someone here does that would be willing to check...

"Shoelace" has been broken (the usual petty changes: "basis" became "rational basis" and "your wife a whore" is gone and so on) and aptly named "Broken" in Open All Night.
The same happened to My Hell ("I am drunk" became "I sit alone", for instance) in Come On In! and (in a somewhat lesser degree) to Nothing for a Title in What Matters Most...

Thanks for all these great contributions Jason!
