Necessary Stranger
Necessary Stranger
by Graham Foust
Staff Pick
Foust's poems are built with quiet and contemplative building blocks that are nearly see-through enough to reveal the barest intentions behind their words. He uses repeated phrasing not for dramatic effect but instead to slow things down into a... (read more)

Woolgathering
Woolgathering
by Patti Smith
Staff Pick
Your childhood wasn't based in "facts," was it? A timeline, something dry and tidy and biographical like that? Nah. You probably remember childhood as a series of vignettes informing you of what it felt like to be alive in a fresh new world. Patti Smith... (read more)

The Reenactments: A Memoir
The Reenactments: A Memoir
by Nick Flynn
Staff Pick
As with Nick Flynn's other major prose works, The Reenactments is a compelling, vignette-style memoir. Flynn's 2004 Another Bullshit Night in Suck City was adapted into a film (Being Flynn) earlier this year, starring Robert De Niro, Julianne Moore, and... (read more)

City Lights Pocket Poets #19: Lunch Poems
by Frank O'hara
Staff Pick
Most days, I carry a copy of Lunch Poems with me on my bus ride to work. It has been an icebreaker, a talisman, a security blanket, and much more. This 50th anniversary edition is a great opportunity to revisit one of the most celebrated poetry... (read more)

My Vocabulary Did This to Me: The Collected Poetry of Jack Spicer (Wesleyan Poetry)
My Vocabulary Did This to Me: The Collected Poetry of Jack Spicer (Wesleyan Poetry)
by Jack Spicer
Staff Pick
Jack Spicer is a wonderfully bizarre and enigmatic poet, whose work has been out of print for far too long. I particularly love After Lorca, but all of Spicer's work deserves to be read and celebrated.... (read more)

Flowers
Flowers
by Paul Killebrew
Staff Pick
Flowers does for me what a John Ashbery collection does: mystifies, stifles, and causes a desire to mimic, leaving with it the eventual personal failure to do so. These are signs of great poetry. Killebrew succeeds in creating comic and anecdotal lines... (read more)

On Tact, and the Made Up World
On Tact, and the Made Up World
by Michele Glazer
Staff Pick
Michele Glazer's On Tact, and the Made Up World is outstanding. These are poems executed with live-wire exactitude; even where one cannot have certainty, Glazer presents her reader with the option that absence is certain enough. And there are absences... (read more)

Byways: A Memoir
Byways: A Memoir

Sestets: Poems
Sestets: Poems
by Charles Wright

Because the Brain Can Be Talked Into Anything: Poems
by Jan Richman
