you can do so just like any inline variable assignment in selecct queries. Sample:

declare       @ID int,
      @DOc int,
      @XML varchar(1024)

                 set @XML='<ROOT>
                  <Node>
                        <ID>1</ID>
                  </Node>
            </ROOT>'

      exec sp_xml_preparedocument @Doc output, @XML

      select @ID=ID
      from openxml(@Doc,'/ROOT/Node',2)
      with (ID int)

      select @ID as ID

      exec sp_xml_removedocument @Doc
