Give me your poetic inspirations (please).


Looking for more reading. Have just dipped my toe in the water of contemporary poets (Ashberry, a few Aussies and a couple we were taught in school), but I want to read more. A google search could probably provide me a list but I'm much more interested in your reccommendations. Favourite poet/favourite poem, am also favourable to the melancholy so if you know any (poetry or poets) that suit please pass them on.



(To start it all off, my favourite poet is a toss up between Cummings and Bukowski, but my favourite poem (so far) is definitely Bukowski's "My First Affair With That Older Woman."
