Spine poems

Yesterday, after the YALSA EXCELLENCE IN NONFICTION committee voted on its winner, a member of the committee stacked the books and shot a photo of their spines. Then, we made up poems using the tiles. Here is the shortlist:

JANIS JOPLIN: RISE UP SINGING
THEY CALLED THEMSELVES THE KKK
DARK GAME
EVERY BONE TELLS A STORY
SPIES OF MISSISSIPPI.

Have fun making your own.

Here are the books sitting next to the computer right now. I have read 2 of them this afternoon.

SIR GAWAIN THE TRUE
INVISIBLE INKLING
UNLOCKED
JACK
BLESS THIS MOUSE
BEAUTY QUEENS
AMERICAPEDIA

What sort of found poems can come from these titles?

Sir Gawain the True unlocked
Jack from his invisible inklings and said,
"Bless this Mouse and the Beauty Queens
who reign over Americapedia."

The variations are nearly endless. And fun.
