Found poem

Write a poem using the titles of books on your shelves, then photograph the books to illustrate your poem. Came across the idea via Me and My Big Mouth (Janet Reid and author Tahereh Mafi). This is mine.

FOUND

THE BLIND ASSASSIN walked
THE WHITE ROAD with
THE BUS DRIVER WHO WANTED TO BE GOD.
Both had HIDDEN HISTORIES
in the UNDERWORLD
AND NEVER SAID A WORD
at THE CANAL where they played
THE GLASS BEAD GAME
and shared A KIND OF INTIMACY,
AS IF ON A WINTER'S NIGHT A TRAVELLER,
in THE REPUBLIC OF WHORES.
