Mini Challenge #1: Book Spine Poetry
So the rules for this challenge are: Make up a poem using only the spine of books! You can use a picture or write out what books you would use in your book spine poem.
Now, once upon a time, I used to write creatively and have written my fair share of poems. Without spending like days on this challenge, it was hard for me to come up with something at least a little bit coherent. And looking at all the books I have added to my Goodreads’ account over the past 4ish years, apparently the titles that aren’t too specific are really quite depressing. So for a lovely, vague, confusing, and depressing poem for your Saturday, here you are!
In the City of Bones, All the Lovely Bad Ones dance in Club Dead
Where their Doll Bones shake to the sounds of The Bone Machine.
They are Fated to Fallout, like The Flame in the Mist.
For Darkness Shows the Stars and the Fuse with its Golden Spark
Catching Fire to the tune of the Blood Song.
And when the club closes, The Bone Season ends,
American Gods going home with Foreign Gods, Inc.
Towards The Casual Vacancy and The Big Sleep.
Okay, so I added a few extra words! Sorry! But show me yours so I can see how it’s done!
