April 10, 2020: Poets We Should All Read: Robin Jewel Smith’s Suggestions

[April is National Poetry Month, and to celebrate I’ll highlight a handful of poets, past and present, we should all be reading. Including some suggestions from fellow AmericanPoetryStudiers—add yours for a celebratory, crowd-sourced weekend poetry post, please!]
For this final post in the series (before that weekend post, so get your nominations in!), I wanted to hand over the blog-reins to one of our most talented young poets, Robin Jewel Smith. Robin is a PhD candidate in English at the University of North Dakota, and her first chapbook, Confessions of a Love Addict, will be coming out this month from Dancing Girl Press. Here are the poets and works Robin shared (in no particular order):
Donika Kelly, Bestiary
Douglas Kearney, Patter
Sally Wen Mao, Oculus
Paul Tran, “The Cave
Sadie Dupuis, Mouthguard
Marwa Helal, Invasive Species
Crowd-sourced post this weekend,
PS. So one more time: what do you think? Other poets you’d highlight?
