On Poets

I actually discovered a poet I REALLY dislike today. Ugh. I never knew a poet could be so arrogant and so not talented, but there it is. Academic poets rarely get my vote and arrogant ones can get a damn grip.

End of rant.

Anyway, I am on the lookout for some new poets to love. Does anyone have any suggestions? My taste is eclectic, generally less academic, more raw.

Some of my favs: Anne Sexton, Edwin Torres, Robert Frost, Ai, Jimmy Santiago Baca, Sandra Cisneros, Nicole Blackman, Christine Hamm, Sapphire, etc...

Any suggestions?
