Book-Spine Poetry

I discovered the concept of book-spine poetry a while back thanks to a Facebook post by the Chicago Manual of Style (yes, I follow CMOS on Facebook, don’t judge me). It’s really fun and so I’ll be periodically posting these poems. Sometimes they might be based on books I am currently reading, or just whatever I pull off my shelves. I try to only use 3-4 books per poem, but you can use whatever you like. 

Today’s is a random mashup based on titles that jumped out at me. Enjoy.
