I love slam poets! I know it's not really the most critically acclaimed or traditional form of poetry, and a lot of poetry fans hate it, however I love it. My favourites are probably Blythe Baird, Neil Hilborn and Edwin Bodney. I find myself resonating to a lot of their work and find the passion and power in their performances to be awe-inspiring. I could gush about them forever haha.
On the other hand, I do find a lot of interest in Sylvia Plath's poetry.

Dante Gabriel Rossetti. The original ladies man.

One of my many ambitions in life is to memorise his poem 'Jenny' in its entirety.

Two German poets are myfavorites:

Johann Wolfgang Goethe
Bertold Brecht

Can't decide between two of them. Another German poet who I liked: Gottfried Benn.

Unfortunately I don't know a British poet who has fascinated me.

Jermaine Cole is the Top Street Poet since 2011

Amazing truthful and thoughtful verses throughout each carefully thought out poem to relate to a certain target audience for each different poem he writes, always includes a deeper message to his poetry as well

Zhang Hanbian. He lived during the Jin dynasty (AD 265-400) and wrote a simplistic and beautiful poem about a 15yo prostitute named Zhou.

I'm not really big on poetry, but I first read it approx 8-10 years ago and I still adore it. He forever immortalised this boy's beauty in few words.
