Instead of best of, I like to make lists of what I enjoy. I think that is often the right way to go :) good discussion on this!

I think this goes for the "top" MFA programs as well.

>>Instead, he gives us a list of books he considers to be great poetry, based on his opinion of the work rather than the color, gender, politics, geographic location or height of the poets. >>
I'm not sure if I'm reading this correctly. Who would want to be on a list based on their color, gender, politics, etc and not based on the quality of the work even if it's in the opinion of one (educated, informed) editor? There's a reason why Elizabeth Bishop didn't like to be known as a "great female poet." But maybe I'm misreading your point.

Radio

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

THE RULE OF THUMB
by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
