Book Spine Poetry

I absolutely love this idea. Raid your bookshelves for interesting titles and create poetry!

I decided to give mine a Dean Koontz theme:

Dark rivers of the heart,

Fear nothing.

Sole survivor:


Have a go yourself. Send me a pingback or use the tag #BookspinePoetry so I can see the results.

    I think the magic in your poem happens with the brilliant use of punctuation. Drives the message home for me.
