The Voice at 3:00 A.M.: Selected Late and New Poems - Charles Simic

A good introduction to Simic's poems. He writes about the most mundane objects in the most surreal ways. Lots of rich imagery and a hint of melancholia throughout. Looking forward to eventually tackling more of his work.

Post-Millennium Rhapsody - J. Andrew Schrecker

Opens with a long-ish poem that seems to be in reaction to current events. Followed by a short story that evokes pretty nostalgia and a few dozen shorter poems that were written earlier. A little all over the place as a collection, but plenty of good material. Vivid imagery and some rather surreal tangents.

Insomniacs, We - J. Andrew Schrecker

Lots of rich imagery. Plenty of social commentary too, but the writing is best when focused on more intimate moments.

Howl and Other Poems - Allen Ginsberg,William Carlos Williams

Generation defining collection of poems. A bit rough around the edges, but that's to be expected with its stream of consciousness style.
