W. S. Merwin and Pablo Neruda
Generally speaking, Merwin wrote so much it is almost impossible not to find at least a poem or 2 that appeal to you. I always thought he read a lot like a sane version of Berryman but, for me, Berryman's insanity was the most interesting thing about him. This poem is typical of U. S. post modern era confessional poetry. It is well-crafted but seems to lack the zing, salaciousness or true despondency of some of the better ones out there. If you like this, I would recommend you read some Berryman's Dreamsongs, as you might really like them as well.
