@richnewman Well, what you see as discipline is me trying to impose some order from a very slipshod and lackadaisical approach to reading (and reading poetry especially) that I have perpetuated for quite some time. By a coincidence of life circumstances, I currently have both the time and energy to engage more fully and more systematically than usual in reading poetry, so I’m taking advantage of this privilege, of sorts, while I can.

Would a brief “hot take” of at least some of the volumes I’ve finished be of interest to you? If it means introducing an otherwise unknown writer to my vast and adoring readership, well... I could probably muster maybe 100 words about some (most?) of the books I’ve completed so far.
