A sense of play. Part of a greater tradition, or community. Appreciate playing with form and interweaving of contemporary elements into what might otherwise be seen as archaic forms— Sherman Alexie's "Facebook Sonnet" chief example of this. Age of hyperlinks, fan of referential humor—work that takes into account wider cultural fabric. Finding poetry in unexpected places. Firmly believe that anything can be poetry. Love when someone proves that true in a way I wish I'd thought of first. Charles Mee plays. Tracy K. Smith poetry—move from David Bowie to the universe; within a single poem, different forms (completely out of the blue, it's a ghazal. And then shifts away on the next page). Personally, historically, interested in Performance Studies, particularly the performance of everyday life—appreciate poetry that engages in a colloquial voice—appreciate accessible poetry, poetry that uses the music of language (and breath) to tell stories/engage in storytelling.
