The first book of poems I ever bought and read was John Updike’s Collected Poems. I was probably seventeen, and I had been really taken by his poem in our English textbook, “Dog’s Death.”

The first book of poems I bought that changed my life was The Collected Poems of Frank O’Hara.

It continues to change my life.
