Here's just a list of poetry book I think are swell. I hope you end up falling in love with poetry through them.
Neil Hilborn$16.00 $14.72
One of my favorite poetry collections. Great book if you love slam poetry but haven't found the right collection that translates well to print. Pairs well with needing someone to talk to and wanting to connect.
Edna St Vincent Millay$22.99 $20.69
Read the gay lady. Do it. It will be fun. Pairs well with wanting to try something new and needing to remember that gay woman existed before the 90's
Maggie Nelson$16.00 $14.72
Easily one of the most beautifully written poetry collections ever published. If you like poetry, I am begging you to read this book. Pairs well with needing a good cry and needing to see something beautiful
Maggie Nelson$15.95 $14.67
True crime meets poetry in this wonderful poetry collection that made me cry on the subway. This book tells the story of Nelson's aunt's murder and also the aftermath of grief. Pairs well with wanting to try something different and needing some emotional release.
