I like this, Gay. You used the titles well. If the goal was to 'capture the castle,' at least the goal WAS achieved!
Oooh I love that you capture the castle as you lay dying.
Really like the precision, the movement & the shape of this spine poem. Sam left us a lot of latitude with this challenge; per usual I had to use 40 titles to accomplish what you created with less; perhaps less is more; thanks, Gay.
capturing the castle...wounded in the house of a friend... the titles make me curious for the book - and you wove some fantastic poetry with them... i liked wicked sanctuary as well... the contradiction gives a nice tension..
Oh the end became filled with meaning.. love the sparseness in this...
Very crafty and meaningful combination Gay!
I always get a kick out of book spine poems. I've got a cento coming up. Like this a lot, Gay.
oo i like the last stanza...but what a saving grace that even wounded you come out on top....smiles..nicely played gay....
This is haunting, you wonderfully capture an atmosphere.
Beautifully done Gay, specially the ending line ~
Very cool, a story like telling in the titles.
Makes me realize how long it is since I read Faulkner.Clever finds with the adjective and noun only titles. This could be habitforming.
Very creative, Gay... I especially like the ending.
Wicked Sanctuary, glad you captured the castle..
This leads my imagination to far-away lands, swashbuckling adventure, deeds of derring-do. Very well done! Oh, and I'm envious of that old Modern Library edition of Sanctuary. Lovely book!
Mysterious and dramatic ending.
Ha..this made me smile...well done!
It's so amazing to see these titles, that I know so well, put together this way, and see new life breathed into them with your assemblage. Well done!
Bang on! Amazin gpiece!
You really captured the castle! Nice book titles and good usage!
Tells a whole story with so few lines. Nice.
oh, this is a potent poem. so well done. I like the mystery it evokes for me.
So much said with so little; I love the close on this, Gay.
Oh, cool! I love the final two lines especially. Such a lovely slant on those books. Thank you.
... simply what we all long for, I'm sure. This is splendid!
Very spare, but carries the resonance of the books behind it. Thanks. K.
