Having Fun with Spine Poetry

Inspired by Jesse Stommel's spinepoetry.com, I had to try a bit of book spine poetry for myself. It's fun! Raid your bookshelves and give it a whirl! I call this one: The Making of a Poem.


The Making of a Poem:
illusions,
breadcrumbs,
clay,
red glass...
a crooked kind of perfect
shine.
The ruby notebook,
33 minutes.
Good enough!

Thanks authors: Mark Strand and Eavan Boland, Anne Ursu, David Almond, Laura Resau, Linda Urban, Lauren Myracle, Laura Resau (again), Todd Hasak-Lowy, and Paula Yoo, for the wonderful titles used in my spine poem.
