I love to read it and I love to write it.
In some ways, it’s harder than writing a novel as every word has to earn its corn. There’s no room for superfluous wallpaper.
Some poets I admire and love: Raymond Carver, Paul Durcan, Patrick Chapman, Emily Dickinson, Paul Muldoon, Maya Angelou, Siegfried Sassoon, Charles Bukowski, Jorge Luis Borges, Emily Brontë, Ted Hughes, Sylvia Plath, Les Murray, Rainer Maria Rilke and Roger McGough, to name a few.
