Book Spine Poetry

book
Quinn McDonald has a great twist on found poetry that's bound to wonderfully disrupt your day. (oh Cthulhu, forgive me the puns; it's a sickness.) Use the titles on your book spines to compose poems. Here are two of mine:






The concept really lends itself to haiku, as you can see. The first one created some angst, because I couldn't BELIEVE I didn't have a copy of Alice in Wonderland. I'm convinced it's been STOLEN, or maybe just mis-shelved, perhaps downstairs in nonfiction. (heehee) But I do love the second. It's practically a synopsis of my novel in progress. 

Feel free to share your spine poetry in the comments!

I mentioned this to Angela because she can't find her copy of Anagrams, and... um.

Chasing Fire
Catching Fire
Burning Up
Ash

...which I'm sure are all available on Kindle.
