“Hunger” is my 16th poem, for day 16 of National Poetry Month. Fourteen more to go! They won’t all be book spine poems, but some will. I’m really enjoying composing these; I’m looking at my books in a new way, noticing different threads that tie groups of books together (how did I amass so many with titles related to eating?) and thinking about what combinations of words it takes to make a poem. I’m also realizing that I’m ready to reread certain books, and looking forward to doing so.
Twitter friend D.D. Syrdal has tried her hand at her first book spine poem with magical results! Do click the link to read it. Has anyone else given this a try yet? Feel free to post your links in the comments.
