The Best American Poetry 2012: Series Editor David Lehman | Mark Doty
5 posts
Mark Doty brings the vitality and imagination that illuminate his own work to his selections for the twenty-fifth volume in the Best American Poetry series. He has chosen poems of high moral earnestness and poems in a comic register; poems that tell stories and poems that test the boundaries of innovative composition. This landmark edition includes David Lehmans keen look at American poetry in his foreword, Mark Dotys gorgeous introduction, and notes from the poets revealing the germination of their work. Over the last twenty-five years, The Best American Poetry has become an annual rite of the poetry world, and this years anthology is a welcome and essential addition to the series.

This is from The Best American Poetry 2011 but that one is not in the data base. #litsypoetry365
This poem strikes me as humorous. I remember when we discussed it in class we found it humorous as well but also there is something deep and knowing in it as well.

This is actually out of the 2011 edition but that isn't in the database. I wouldn't have bought this book except I needed it for the poetry class I took that year. There are some fantastic pieces in these anthologies.
