A number of my fellow bloggers have presented a list of ten poems that constitute an introduction to their own poems. In reading these lists, my immediate reaction (me, me, me, right?) is that the poems that I post on this blog do not really serve that purpose.
So I’m going to start thinking about a list that I may or may not actually complete. A little Berryman should be there, for sure. Bishop might show up. Some of the Spanish language poets have been influential for me, Vallejo, Huidobro, and others. Let’s stir this up a bit and see what happens.
