» POETRY! POETRY! POETRY! by Peter Davis Rattle: Poetry for the 21st Century – This might be the most unusual book of poems I’ve ever read, reviewed, and recommended. Poets and poetry editors  especially will relate to the quirky titles such as “Poem Addressing Some of the Obstacles This Poem Will Face as It Tries to Entertain, Impress, and Succeed in the World of Poetry,” “Poem Addressing Potential Publishers of This Poem. Thanks!” or “Poem Addressing People Who Have Actually Decided to Write a Review of This.” You’re welcome. It was fun.
