Bruce Springsteen & SMG

This is a “found poem” loosely based on the D’Verse Poet’s writing prompt found here. Each phrase is an unedited Bruce Springsteen song title arranged to (hopefully) form a poem of sorts.

I saw Springsteen live in '85 - before some of these songs were recorded. Gotta love some of these songs - and a few you didn't mention.

A very cool take on the prompt - and a cool artist to use!

This was an interesting read - titles of songs into a poem ~ I know some of them, smiles ~

An interesting variation to the stacked book poem! I'm a Springsteen fan myself, and it was such a thrill to see all those titles put together into something amazing. Well done!

A neat twist on the spine poetry framework. I'm also a Springsteen fan, so it was a thrill to see these song titles woven into a poem like this. Well done!
