About anything that fits. Meter is my straight jacket.
Poems that make meaningful use of structure. Poems generated within tight constraints. Very incomplete sample of favorite poets: Jorge Luis Borges, Miguel Hernández, Edna St. Vincent-Millay, A.E. Stallings, and local hero Rhina Espaillat.
Poetry made me a better reader of the multiple layers of everyday life. Whether or not that's important, I don't know.
I'm a mathematician and a bilingual poet and translator.
