Dana Guthrie Martin is one of those people who's simply magical in her word choices. She has a poem in the latest Boxcar Poetry Review.
Another poet I have come to appreciate recently is Jayne Pupek and she's in Stirring this issue.
With that, I'll serve up a W. S. Merwin quote, since he is yet another poet I that elicits strong feelings:
Poetry is like making a joke. If you get one word wrong at the end of a joke, you've lost the whole thing.
