For the past several weeks, I have been in the mood to read some poetry. I'm not quite sure how to go about picking out something to read. In my poetry reading heyday 25 years ago, Nikki Giovanni was my favorite poet. I don't even remember how I started reading her work, though. I know that I was attracted to writing from the 1960s and 1970s back then, but that's it.
I would welcome any suggestions from poetry lovers out there. I don't like nature poetry, but other than that I am willing to give anything a try.
