Make your books into a poem – new favorite!

The entries in Janet Reid’s Make Your Books Into a Poem contest continue to stun me. Here’s my new favorite from “Kathleen 11-21″:

FOR INNOCENTS ONLY…

I attended THE BOYFRIEND SCHOOL
and married A REGULAR GUY
who was JUST MY TYPE,
THE SECOND COMING OF STEVE JOBS.

We bought a home on GOOD HOPE ROAD,
where I taught myself the JOY OF COOKING
and HOW TO MAKE AN AMERICAN QUILT.

It was ALMOST PARADISE.

It was A FALSE SENSE OF WELL BEING.

One Saturday, OUT OF THE BLUE,
I received a call from THE OTHER WIFE,
who said HE WAS HER MAN.
Apparently I couldn’t see THE FOREST FOR THE TREES.

That night I stood under the MILK GLASS MOON
and prayed to OUR LADY OF THE LOST AND FOUND.
Is it not a sin to LIE DOWN IN DARKNESS?

He was DEAD ON SUNDAY,
ROADKILL,
may he REST IN PIECES.

Now he is STEPPIN’ ON A RAINBOW,
and I am locked up for ALL MY LIFE
following one of THE GREAT TEXAS MURDER TRIALS.

I NEED ALL THE FRIENDS I CAN GET.
Someone, PLEASE DO FEED THE CAT.
