My Spine

Today I created a poem based on the order of book titles in my collection (thanks Huddersfield New College library for the inspiration!). Without realising I’ve probably placed certain titles together in a certain order, and when read as a text some of the words make sense or take on new meanings in unexpected ways. What do you come up with?

“Hot milk

we should all be feminists

why be happy when you can be normal

a girl is a half-formed thing

Harmless like you

your family your body

men explain things to me

if I’m scared we can’t win


brand new ancients

I love this part


The Bricks that Built the Houses”
