Love-A-Thon: Book Spine Poetry


The Love-A-thon first mini challenge has arrived: Make up a poem using only the spines of books!

The books I used:

If You Find Me by Emily Murdoch, Beyond the River by Robert Elmer, One Thousand White Women by Jim Fergus, Wicked by Gregory Maguire, Flawless by Sara Shepard, Hold My Hand & Run by Margaret McAllister, The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien, Tweak by Nic Sheff, Sideways by Red Pickett, Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer, Shut the door by Amanda Marquit, and 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea by Jules Verne.

My poem:

Wicked Women

If you find me beyond the river,

One thousand white women,



Hold my hand and run.

The things they carried tweak sideways

extremely loud and incredibly close.

Shut the door,

20,000 leagues under the sea.
