April is Poetry Month!
“Read poetry because the world and our emotions and our ideas are always more complicated than we want them to be.” [and poetry helps us make sense of them, or] “Read poetry so you can hate National Poetry Month knowledgeably on social media.” (https://www.huffingtonpost.com/dan-chelotti-/why-read-poetry_b_5227554.html)
Regardless of the reason, we have some wonderful books of poetry by Native American authors. If you love poetry, you will find plenty to feed your passion. If you hate poetry, just try it again. It never hurts to read out of your comfort zone occasionally. Try familiar authors like Sherman Alexie or S’Klallam poet, Duane Niatum. Or dig deeper for some hidden gems like Mary Tallmountain, Natalie Diaz, or the talented writers in “#NotYourPrincess.” If you try it, you might find yourself pleasantly surprised. If not, like the quote above says, at least you can trash poetry more knowledgeably.
