Book Spine Poetry Friday

Still poking around on this rainy Friday afternoon? I haven’t been one for posting under the ubiquitous kids’ lit “Poetry Fridays“, but I did enjoy this new little art form called Book Spine Poetry.  This kind of poetry, mostly practiced by Nina Katchadourian, consists of stacks of books, arranged so that the titles form new phrases and meaningful lyrics.  Some are silly, some profound, but the general consensus is that this simple activity is much more difficult than it appears.

My poem (above) and others are featured over at 100 Scope Notes, so go check it out!  You won’t be able to help trying your own.
