Found poetry: book titles

I found a list of new book titles at the library and started fiddling around with them. Here’s what I ended up with after about 20 minutes:

close your eyes
at the last minute
dare me
to kill you twice

once burned
the bones of the long earth are forever
time without time
the last victim dies a stranger

shadow of night
dreams the odd apocalypse
the survivor a judgement call
fallen angel whispers in the wind

friends forever
the next best thing
if I can’t have you
close your eyes

  1. Gorgeous!!! Actual full titles or were you creative with arrangement?

    • Most of the lines are actual full titles. Let’s see: I added a couple words (to and the), combined two titles in one line, ran two titles together in eight lines, and changed the form of one verb. It was an exercise in inspiration rather than purity, and oodles of fun. 🙂
