A Few of My Favorite Poems 2018

A camellia from my garden, December 2018

Glass: A Journal of Poetry has released its annual list of recommended reading in poetry. I keep a list, too, of favorite poems throughout the year so I thought I’d share a few with y’all. These are in no particular order and are not all of the poetry I’ve saved over the past year. But, these are definitely stellar poems in some of my favorite journals. I hope you’ll click through and read them.

Louisiana Requiem by Heather Treseler in Frontier Poetry.

Hurricane, 3rd Day by Melissa Studdard in New Ohio Review.

The Peaches by Jericho Brown in The Adroit Journal.

Eve in the Blood by M. Stone in Avatar Review.

Finishing School by Emma Bolden in Black Warrior Review.

Spectacle by Lindsay Illich in Foundry.

Visitation by Marissa Glover in Barren Magazine.

Upon the Blue Nile by Bola Opaleke in the Pangolin Review.

Voucher by Jack Bedell in Ucity Review.

Europa by Echo Wren in Rattle.

Fish Love by Bryanna Licciardi in The Mantle.

Anniversary Poem by Michael Maul in Dodging the Rain.


(PS – If I get really motivated I’ll do a Flash Fiction list and a Photography list.)

      1. I’m working my way through them, bit by bit. If I read too much poetry, it stops going in. In the meantime, I just sent a link to a friend who’s a poet. Thanks for publishing them. It’s generous.
