Stealing from “The Book Thief”

I am attempting to finish
The Book Thief again
but Zusak’s prose prompts
so many poems of my own
that I write more than I read.

The jacket cover bleeds colour
beside my bed
as I scratch, shape
and fiddled with words.
Heard from Liesel’s mouth
in the streets of Munich.

-Dave Kavanagh

This fell off another piece that I am trying to write

“The Book Thief”
Novel by Markus Zusak
