Does anybody out there read poetry? I did when I was a teenager to impress girls but now I'm wondering if there's anything out there that isn't junk. Please tell me who the good poets are so I can go read some. Note: I'm biased against poetry that uses language normal people don't use. ie. "Thine heart hath made mine whole" = groan city from the Brad section of the audience.
So far the neatest poet someone has suggested to me is e.e. cummings who is at least pretty nuts a lot of the time.
