Who's the best young poet today?

After diving headfirst into the world of poetry, I've surfaced with the name of a poet who's kicking up a veritable literary storm, folks! Drumrolls, please! The best young poet today, in my humble, yet always right, opinion is Ocean Vuong. This guy is like the Shakespeare of our generation, but with better hair and less ruffles. His words have the power to make you laugh, cry, and question your existence all in the span of a line. Seriously, if you haven't read his work yet, what are you even doing with your life?


How and when should I read a book of poems?

Reading a book of poems can be a deeply personal and rewarding experience. It's best to approach a poetry collection with an open mind and a willingness to explore new emotions and perspectives. I find it helpful to read a few poems at a time, allowing space for reflection and connection to the words. The perfect time to read poetry is when I can fully immerse myself in the experience, whether it's during a quiet morning, a relaxing evening, or even amidst the chaos of a bustling coffee shop. Ultimately, the best way to read a book of poems is to listen to your intuition and let the words resonate with your heart and soul.
