Free verse to Clover

May 21, 2012

Lynn Daue has asked for a new book spine poem. This time I raided C’s bookshelves. Give it a try…it’s addictive.

It reads:




What looks like crazy on an ordinary day

Taking time off, into thin air

Power over stress, sex, drugs and cocoa puffs

How to become ridiculously well-read in one evening

I was told there’s be cake, ham on rye

Now you know more

Seriously…I’m kidding

Now you know almost everything.

    Love this line: “Power over stress, sex, drugs and cocoa puffs”

      Thank you Shawna. It’s so unexpected sometimes, isn’t it. I was thinking of my 20yr old, her culture, her university books, her CMNS education…came together nicely.
