Weekend Reading: Some Real Poems

pexels-photo-414586.jpegNow that you’ve suffered through some of my “poetry,” maybe you want to read some real poems, huh? By real poets. (She says as if she knows what that means.) Anyway, I think these poems are good. I hope you do, too.

“Lula” by Maggie Smith (the woman who wrote “Good Bones”–the one poem you’ve ever seen take over your news feed).

“Alpha Zulu” by Gary Copeland Lilley

“Milk Drunk” by Jessica Lakritz. (This is a cool project: Skin on Sundays. Very short poems written on skin, with a bit of a back story at the bottom. I’m particularly fond of this one because, well, I get it.)

“A Dream of Trees” by Mary Oliver

April Aubade” by Sylvia Plath
