2014 Round-up: Poetry (Trade)

A very informal round-up of some of my reading in 2014, to be posted in a number of parts.

First up, 14 trade books of poetry from 2014 that held my attention, skewed by how much (re: how little) time I had to read. So, a number of books that would likely be here aren’t simply because I haven’t had the time to give them proper attention yet.

I think there are actually one or two late-2013 books in here, but I only got them in 2014, and I’m making the rules up, so here they are.
