A new book spine poem, aka bookmash, this one a mixture of recent reads and newly acquired to-be-reads. (Click to enlarge the photo.)
Trespass in a Strange Room
Trespass in a strange room –
Criminal shadows, a severed head,
John Brown’s body waiting for an angel,
Thanks to the authors: Rose Tremain, Damon Galgut, David Canter, Iris Murdoch, A.L. Barker, Helon Habila, and James Ellroy; and to artist Nina Katchadourian.
If you’re new to this game and drawn to the idea, I have over 30 book spine poems in the archive along with assorted commentary and links.
