Get Yourself A Life
A list of poetry books I read which give me a great escapade.
1. Poems with the nakedness of their confessions, their black humor, and their ferocious honesty about what people do to one another and to themselves by Sylvia Plath Plath: Poems (Everyman’s Library Pocket Poets)
2. Poems about… booze, work, and women, which truth has struck a chord with generation of readers by Charles Bukowski The Pleasures of the Damned: Poems, 1951-1993
3. Belligerent, abstract, polemical, radical, and sometimes simply baffling poems of Francis Picabia, a poet, painter, self-described funny guy, idiot, failure, pickpocket, and anti-artist par excellence I Am a Beautiful Monster: Poetry, Prose, and Provocation
4. Beautifully illustrated with lush and haunting silhouettes of species from insect to bird to mammal, captured in motion as they hunt their prey, build their nests, or protect their young, poems by Mark Doty A Swarm, A Flock, A Host: A Compendium of Creatures
