Books w/o Bindings

Two years ago, Container‘s Jenni B. Baker expressed her interest in what she calls poetry intersections:

I like to take things . . . and ask myself not “How can I make a poem about that?” but “How can I make that a poem?” What would it look like if pill bottles were poems? What about subway tickets? What if I turned my Outlook meeting calendar into a poem?

The concept of poetry intersections has stuck in my mind, and recently I wondered if a collection of diner guest checks or a medical file could be a book of poems, so to speak. The result? My “Books w/o Bindings” series. :- )

Suggestions for future “books” are welcome!
