“Book Spine Poem” Featured Poet – Monique Shante

Congratulations to this week’s poetry prompt winner, Monique Shante!  Her blog explores flash fiction and poetry (but her About Me page is a must-read of 25 fascinating facts)…and her response to the challenge, “Create a Book Spine Poem by layering titles to make a meaningful statement” celebrates all things literary.

Following is her original poem, How Fiction Works:

How fiction works:

Invisible man playing in the dark

Kicking tongues just above my head–

The art of the story!

Book List:

How Fiction Works by James Wood

Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison

Playing in the Dark by Toni Morrison

Kicking Tongues by Karen King-Aribisala

Just Above My Head by James Baldwin

The Art of the Story by Daniel Halpern

  1. Thanks so much, this is awesome! I’m honored to be a featured poet & I really did enjoy creating the poem. The prompt was a great one, I hadn’t realized how inspiring book spines could be. Also glad you found my “About Me” page fascinating! Thanks again!
