An example of a poetry written with a "hook." A book published by a woman who seems to be a prostitute in Barcelona, Violeta Rángel. Written with a lot of street slang. There's a suggestive blurry photo of author en deshabillée. I was suspicious. Later on I found my suspicions confirmed: the actual author was a guy named Manuel Moya. The hook in this case was the sordid biography of the writer and the aura of suspicion surrounding it. Then, once the hoax is exposed, the hook can be the fact that it was a hoax all along.
