I'm going to start Daniel Beachy-Quick's "Spell" next (M-D was fortuitous prep reading). And Virginia Woolf's "Between the Acts." I want to get back to the Maximus poems. I'm also looking forward to Chris Arigo's "Lit Interim," and Olena Davis' "shattered sonnets, love cards, and other off and back handed importunities", and also two books I'm curious about from the authors' blogs: "Invisible Bride" by Tony Tost and "Selah" by Josh Corey. Clark Coolidge sounds worth getting to soon as well. Soon is relative, of course.

The thing is, I really haven't been up to the physical intensity of reading poetry at all since 2000, and am sure I've missed a lot I don't even know about. If anyone passing through has any suggestions, I'd be happy to hear them.

Beth Ann Fennelly's Tender Hooks is an excellent recent collection.
