Don't see a lot about new poets here. Like those who are still alive, and are blogging, birthing kids, if female (tho there seems to be a sudden exception, no idea if he's a poet) and holding down current day jobs.
So I just finished reading Reb Livingston's latest book of poetry "Your Ten Favorite Words" -
If you want to see every relationship you have ever had or considered chopped into pieces, whirlled into a cuisinarte and then put into a kaleidoscope for viewing, please do check her out. It is worth the price of the admission.
In addition to Your Ten Favorite Words, she's the author of Pterodactyls Soar Again (Whole Coconut Chapbook Series, 2006) and co-author of Wanton Textiles (No Tell Books, 2006), her work appears in literary magazines and has been nominated for two Pushcart prizes. ”That’s Not Butter“ appears in The Best American Poetry 2006 (Scribner). She writes an occasional poetry column called “Crucial Rooster” at The Happy Booker. She has Creative Writing degrees from Bennington (MFA) and Carnegie Mellon (BA).
Reb is also the editor of No Tell Books.

She doesn't like me very much, but, obviously, that doesn't mean I don't love her poetry.
