An Introduction

I’m a big reader, but up until a couple of years ago I would have told you that I didn’t really like poetry, maybe with the exception of Emily Dickinson. I’m not sure if it was like some foods—balsamic vinaigrette, tomatoes—where it took some time for me to decide poetry was to my taste, or the wider variety of poetry available to me with the internet and zines, or if it was just because I like things a lot better when I come to them naturally and don’t have to pick them apart for a grade.

But the point is: here are some poems and other poetry-adjacent writing that I like, and that I found interesting or evocative or meaningful or all three. Maybe you’ll like some of them, too.
