Here is a list of some books of poetry that I have enjoyed, and thus recommend. (I know I have missed a couple, so I will amend as necessary.) Most of the books on this list I purchased this year.
Falling in Love with Picking Myself up—Talicha Johnson (self-published)
Crybaby—Caitlyn Siehl (Words Dance Publishing)
Not Aloud—Christopher J. Jarmick (MoonPath Press)
Tempest of Stars—Jean Cocteau, translated by Jeremy Reed (Enitharmon)
Holy Robots—Vasilina Orlova (Gutenberg Printing Press Independent Group)
