Poetry Friday: The Genius

poetry friday button Poetry Friday: The Genius

On April 1st, I want to kick off National Poetry Month with the bang it deserves.

But I’m gonna need your help.

I’ll post a new book spine cento here every Friday in March. On Friday, April 1st I’ll put up a gallery with your submissions. Click here for more information on creating your own book spine poem.

Give it a try, snap a photo, and send it my way (scopenotes (at) gmail (dot) com) or post it to your blog and let me know.

Here’s my first March poem:
