Basho, On Love and Barley (tr., Lucien Styrk). Always magic, always mixing worlds and worlds and worlds.
Donna de la Perriere, “First Love,” in Volt (http://www.voltpoetry.com/images/volt17_Perriere.pdf). A great new poem by a great poet.
Paul Hoover, desolation : souvenir. A great book—one of the most beautiful (one of the wisest) books of poetry I have ever read.
Kathryn Pringle, Fault Tree. If you’re worrying about the future of poetry, stop.
Nijole Miliauskaite (tr., Jonas Zdanys), four poems in The Vintage Book of Contemporary World Poetry (ed., J.D. McClatchey). Miliauskaite’s poems are wonderful and absolutely necessary—I need to find more of her work right away.
