Book Spine Poetry: MP! gets lyrical with a little help from our books

Poetry isn’t really our forte here at MP!, but we’ve seen some Book Spine Poetry scattered across the interwebs and figured we’d have a go. And give you a bit of a laugh at our rather spectacular poetry skills at the same time, of course.


The idea behind book spine poetry is pretty simple: stack your books to make a narrative out of the book titles. And yet it’s a little trickier than it soundst. Here are our attempts:

Poem 1

Have a little faith – the sky is everywhere.
Carry on.

Poem 2

Every day since you’ve been gone,
This raging light lies.

Poem 3

Story of a Girl
We were liars:
I was here – out of control.

Poem 4

When we collided?
Trouble under my skin
Outside in
Inside out
How hard can love be?

What do you think? Have a go yourself and send us your results @maximumpopbooks!
