Year in Review: My Favorite Poems of 2006
Of the many, many poems we've published over the course of 2006, the following eight are the pieces that moved me most—the ones that I most wished I had written instead and that I most shared with friends. I want to bring attention to each once more before 2006 trades out with 2007.
