This slim collection features a handful of Williams’ most well-known works, including the sparse, elegant title poem and, my favorite of his, “This is Just to Say.” A perfect, pocket-sized gift for anyone who loves poetry. Try his Selected Poems for a more thorough compilation. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau

My introduction to Cummings’ signature style was the poem “r-p-o-p-h-e-s-s-a-g-r,” a rearrangement of the letters in the word “grasshopper,” and if you look for it, you can actually see the shape of a grasshopper in the arrangement of the words and letters jumping across the page. Cummings was a master of form subversion, fracturing and scattering what should be together and marrying what traditionally should not; some of his poems are as simple as a leaf falling, some as confounding as the inner workings of an engine. This collection is a perfect introduction to his greatest works. ~ Reviewed by Joe Michon-Huneau

Hilborn has lived and is living his subject matter. He “gets it” and wants to share that with you. He is a fantastic writer, poet and story teller. “The worst thing about being naked and then being hit by a car is that road rash is a problem for skin.” (You think, Neil?) He knows how to spin and twist and turn each poem. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

Availability: Hard to Find - May no longer be available
Published: Button Poetry - January 30th, 2018

Schwartz portrays sexuality, love, life, religion and politics in beautiful language to the eye and minds ear. Bound is not a book that you can sit and read in one sitting. Or if you do, you should go back for multiple readings. She says a lot in short, sometimes very unique poems. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette

It has been said that Francisco has “defined poetry for a generation of new readers.” And he does have a modern take with his poetry about love, race, living and even his depression. He is easy to read but packs a punch with his great tidbits of relatable poems. ~ Reviewed by Jeanette
