The best poems badger us. They settle down next to us and ask the questions that never would have occurred to us. They ask us questions for several minutes, maybe a day, sometimes for years. Their odd worlds stay with us. These are the poems we grow to love, even if we can't answer their questions, especially when they bewilder us. Contemporary poetry is expanding into thrilling new territory, and the questions it asks us are more urgent now than ever.
Our poetry subscription highlights the innovativeness and diversity of contemporary American poetry.
