This Past Week in Review

This past week I've read a variety of poets. Some new to me and many who were not. In fact I read a number of poems that I was already well acquainted with. Material from Sharon Olds, Ron Padgett, Donald Hall, Sylvia Plath, and Robert Bly. Some new material to me by Robert Wrigley (Discretion is I believe one on my new favorites!), Alan Michael Parker, David Kirby, Daniel Wilcox, and Paul Durkan. Durkan's poem, The Poetry Reading Last Night In The Royal Hibernian Hotel is hysterical.
