30 Poets You Should Be Reading | Literary Hub

This is what it sounds like outside,
fat geese and guinea hens holding hands.
I am 31, which is very young for my age.
That is enough to realize I’m a pencil that has learned
how to draw the Internet. I explain squiggles
diagramming exactly how I feel and you are drawn to read
in ways you cannot yet. Slow goes the drag
of creation, how what’s within comes to be without,
which is the rhythmic erection of essence.

– Amy King

DACA Rescinded & Poets Respond by Christopher Soto | Poetry Foundation

 

Cornelius Eady

It looks like we have finally done it; we have turned the accident of birth into an accidental crime. We have told 800,000 kids to go home, when they are home. If they are not Americans, neither am I. But I am an American and refuse to give in to the lie that wants to fill the transports with accents and darker skins. This a moment the world is watching and waiting to see who we declare ourselves to truly be; are we this?

 

Book covers for Janine Josephs driving without a license and Marcelo Hernandez Castillo Cenzontle, two of the members of the Undocupoets campaign, along with Christopher Soto and Javier Zamora.

A Longhouse Birdhouse: WHY POETRY ~

A fine enough poet but I believe the best mind of Matthew Zapruder comes through in this excellent new book of essays — really one long essay — on the same subject of why poetry, why poets, why is there air, and he even scores points on Auden’s much over-used ragged line “poetry makes nothing happen” . . . with a delightful twist, Zapruder will show the reader that is exactly right: poetry MAKES nothing happen. A big word that “nothing.”
In these essays Zapruder shows forth as a natural born teacher.
Take up this book.

René Char, Living in globes. The childish ambition of the… | Mythology of Blue

Living in globes. The childish ambition of the poet is to become someone living in space. Contrary to what he was intended to do. His first poetic operation: to submit to the invasion of himself, to combine his emotions, his pleasures in love, this side of the hidden excrement of their object, to withdraw himself by divine right from general oblivion, to dismantle himself without destroying himself.

René Char, from Moulin premier (via 50watts
