I don't know about you, but I kinda love book-spine poetry. If you're unfamiliar with BSP, basically you string together the titles of books to make sentences, all abstract and poetic-like. It's fun, a little silly, and a great way to go through your shelves and get creative with any books you have sitting around.
As I've got a lot of books on my shelves, the poetic possibilities are endless, so I post these to instagram occasionally - but I thought I really should be sharing them with you. So here's the latest: a maudlin little piece about drowned peoples and sirens lost at sea, inspired by the insane amoutn of water books on my shelves...
There's Always a Siren Singing You to Shipwreck...
We the drowned, The Unidentified, Revived The Drowned Cities.
A Drowned Maidens Hair, Strands of Bronze and Gold...
Breathe, Siren, Girl at Sea.
Between the Sea and Sky, When the Sea is Rising Red, Ruby Red...
Across A Star-Swept Sea,
The Dead-Tossed Waves,
The Vicious Deep;
The Space Between - Fathomless.
Super fun, right? Do you guys ever make book-spine poetry? If you do, drop me a link or tag me on instagram (@bookishmisty), or tweet me a pic @TheBookRat! I'd love to see what your brains and your shelves have to offer! ;)
