some amazing books of poetry i read in 2003 

last night i had a wicked fucking nightmare that i was working in a bank and i refused to wear a tie. so i decided to wear a dress instead, a really lovely purple dress with a tiny pink flower print on the cuffs and collar. anyway, everyone was freaked out, customers, bank manager, security guards, even though i was changing my voice to sound like a woman. it was just a bad idea, to the point that i had a nervous breakdown at the teller window, screaming and throwing deposit slips up in the air. but then there was this great part of the dream where i went to Fergie's for a beer after work and everyone liked my dress and the bartender gave me some quarters for the jukebox. i played Elvis and drank my beer. when i woke up i decided to calm down from the dream by making this list of books of poetry i read in 2003 that i think are pretty amazing.
