bookspine poem: “resolutions revisited” by Natasha Adams

you are here
the biggest twitch
is this normal?
fighting for air
so stressed
to hell with all that
that’s just the way I am
be happy without being perfect
eat, drink and be gorgeous
mums & dads get active with your kids
laughter is the best medicine

Background info on history of the form: Below is a cut & paste from HERE
"The concept of book spine poetry appeared in 1993 with Nina Katchadourian’s Sorted Books project. Katchadourian began collecting interesting titles and arranging them in clusters so the spines could be read like a sentence"

TASH ADAMS: My library was super interested in what I was doing & was keen for me to host a "bookspine poetry workshop/night" They serve wine & cheese and weren't perturbed at putting lots of books away at the end of the night.
