Thanks so much for including me in your recent Facebook list of poems. I look forward to reading every poem on your list! I wonder if you could give me some specific poetry book recommendations, since you are so widely read. I’m looking for ones that include a long poem in a larger book. I’m particularly interested in those which braid different narratives/voices into the long poem and use variations in formatting, etc. (as Paisley Reikdal did in “ The Invention of the Kaleidoscope.”) Do you have any recommendations? A stand-alone chapbook might also be interesting to look at. Thank you in advance for considering my question. Best, W.J. Herbert (Wendy)
