Spine Poetry*

spine poetry

dream work:

a poem traveled down my arm-

the wellspring …

what more?

love poems,

22 and 50 poems

on love and barley,

songs of innocence and of experience-

the great fires,

a clear burning

under the Tuscan sun-

the wild olive tree,

olives & oranges:

the road not taken …

blue iris


*Spine poetry is a fun exercise. Gather some of your favorite books, stack them up and rearrange them to create a (somewhat coherent) poem from the titles. Take a picture and voilà–a new poem has emerged from the words that inspired you.
