Books: Book Spine Poetry

Book Spine Poetry is something I have seen a few times on the blogs that I follow, and I decided that it was about time I had a go. The idea is to have a look at your book titles and select a few to create a poem from them. It gives you a chance to look at your books in a new light and also have a little fun! I’ll tell you something though, this is not an easy task! I don’t know how long it took me, but it definitely got my brain working.

Before I go to sleep, a monster calls.
The subtle knife. Panic.
Red Rising.

I didn’t set out with the goal of making such a ‘dark’ poem, but I think I like it. I originally wanted to aim for something that rhymed, but I really didn’t have any book titles that would make sense. Maybe I can try again when I get back to my university flat and I have the other half of my books…

Ever tried this? I’d love to see some of the poems you’ve made – leave me links!
