How Fiction Works (7.31.12/Poem 6)

Reason2Rhyme Poetry Prompt – “Book Spine Poem”

Prompt can be found at: Karen B Nelson

Rules: Create a Book Spine Poem by layering titles to make a meaningful statement.  These can be books you own, or notice at your local bookstore or online.  (Photo is optional, but it’s nice to at least give credit to the authors’ works and their contribution to your poem.)

I found this idea so inspiring, interesting, & fun! Here’s my photo & poem:

How fiction works:

Invisible man playing in the dark

Kicking tongues just above my head–

The art of the story!

Book List:

Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

Playing in the Dark by Toni Morrison

Kicking Tongues by Karen King-Aribisala
