My new bookmash is more a story fragment than a found poem. But the format remains the same.
I am Mary Dunne,
The fifth child, Liza,
Earthbound the beginning of spring –
Almost there, in other words.
I’m not scared.

Thank you to the authors: Brian Moore, Ira Levin, Doris Lessing, Ivan Turgenev, Richard Matheson, Penelope Fitzgerald, Nuala O’Faolain, C.J. Moore, Niccolò Ammaniti, and Claire Kilroy; and to Nina Katchadourian for the idea.
Bookmashes are great fun to make, so feel free to add one to the thread below or let me know if you post one elsewhere. They work best with a photo, but it’s not essential. There are lots more in the bookmash archive, including links to other people’s.
