American Poetry The Next Generation

My favorite Poetry anthology of all time is American Poetry: The Next Generation (Carnegie Mellon Poetry Series) edited by Gerald Costanzo and Jim Daniels

The Collected Poems of Ai

In general, I prefer digesting poems in shorter collections, you cannot beat the experience of delving into The Collected Poems of Ai

The first volume of contemporary Poetry I read was Satan Says by Sharon Olds

The Prose Poem

 I haven’t read The Prose Poem: An International Anthology edited by Michael Benedikt. I can’t even find it. So I recommend finding it, reading it, and then giving it to me.

After graduating from Sam Rayburn High School, in Pasadena, Texas, he embarked on a career in the United States Army, which lasted for over twenty years, until he retired in 1993. Upon his retirement “Preacher” went to work for a major pharmaceutical company in northeastern Pennsylvania. Throughout his life “Preacher” has worked with livestock and chased arena lights of the small town rodeo circuit as a saddle bronc rider, and a bull rider. He also spent quite a bit of his spare time as a working cowboy with various small cattle concerns throughout the country. All of the things associated with rodeo and working cowboys were his passion, a passion that he still has today at age sixty. He currently resides in a small town in the mountainous Coal Region of northeastern Pennsylvania with his wife Kathleen, a pack of dogs, a couple of cats and a house full of grandchildren.”
