Bookspine Poetry

I can’t pass up the opportunity to whip up some bookspine poetry when I’m in a bookstore!

It’s as good as being creative in a library except you get that heavenly new book smell.

Missing, presumed

Good as dead.

The appearance of murder,

Screams in the dark.


Why don’t you give it a go? Post a link so I can see your creations.
