      So what? You expected to come in here and drop trite names everyone knows? Away with you! I'm looking for the diamonds off the beaten path, not the slop modern academia and propogandic leftist journals hurl in the troughs of the masses.

          Why are you so pitiful desperate to be accepted? I don't care if you read all the perverse women writers in the world, but stop trying to cram them down my throat. I'll read what I want. You want your perversions and modern ""values"" to be accepted by everyone? Well guess what, they aren't. Get over it.

            not perversions, these poets represent the quintessence of the grecian-bisexual worldview and a twitterchud like you wouldn't get it. you will never be well read. the words of a book die as you read them because your ADHD brain literally cannot

    ANIMA MEA

    Estava a Morte ali, em pé, diante,
    Sim, diante de mim, como serpente,
    Que dormisse na estrada e de repente
    Se erguesse sob os pés do caminhante.

    Era de vêr a funebre bacchante!
    Que torvo olhar! que gesto de demente!
    E eu disse-lhe: «Que buscas, impudente,
    Loba faminta, pelo mundo errante?»

    — Não temas, respondeu (e uma ironia
    Sinistramente estranha, atroz e calma,
    Lhe torceu cruelmente a bôca fria).

    Eu não busco o teu corpo... Era um tropheu
    Glorioso demais... Busco a tua alma —
    Respondi-lhe: «A minha alma já morreu!»

    If you haven't read Keats yet you're missing out on some of the best poetry in the English language.

      I love Keats - taken too soon. I read a lot of poetry. I just wanted to get a thread going for straight male poets who are preferably Christian and modern, but even one's who aren't Christian or modern, like Keats, are welcome.

      A Mormon poet? I'm not sure if I found information on the right man. Very fun poetry, really. He has good command of language, even if it's a bit simple in style. I enjoyed it.

    Out in the mindless void the daemon bore me,
    Past the bright clusters of dimensioned space,
    Till neither time nor matter stretched before me,
    But only Chaos, without form or place.
    Here the vast Lord of All in darkness muttered
    Things he had dreamed but could not understand,
    While near him shapeless bat-things flopped and fluttered
    In idiot vortices that ray-streams fanned.

    They danced insanely to the high, thin whining
    Of a cracked flute clutched in a monstrous paw,
    Whence flow the aimless waves whose chance combining
    Gives each frail cosmos its eternal law.
    “I am His Messenger,” the daemon said,
    As in contempt he struck his Master’s head.

    I met an aged, aged man
    Upon the lonely moor:
    I knew I was a gentleman,
    And he was but a boor.
    So I stopped and roughly questioned him,
    "Come, tell me how you live!"
    But his words impressed my ear no more
    Than if it were a sieve.

    He said, "I look for soap-bubbles,
    That lie among the wheat,
    And bake them into mutton-pies,
    And sell them in the street.
    I sell them unto men," he said,
    "Who sail on stormy seas;
    And that's the way I get my bread –
    A trifle, if you please."

    But I was thinking of a way
    To multiply by ten,
    And always, in the answer, get
    The question back again.
    I did not hear a word he said,
    But kicked that old man calm,
    And said, "Come, tell me how you live!"
    And pinched him in the arm.

    His accents mild took up the tale:
    He said, "I go my ways,
    And when I find a mountain-rill,
    I set it in a blaze.
    And thence they make a stuff they call
    Rowland's Macassar Oil;
    But fourpence-halfpenny is all
    They give me for my toil."

    But I was thinking of a plan
    To paint one's gaiters green,
    So much the color of the grass
    That they could ne'er be seen.
    I gave his ear a sudden box,
    And questioned him again,
    And tweaked his grey and reverend locks,
    And put him into pain.

    He said, "I hunt for haddock's eyes
    Among the heather bright,
    And work them into waistcoat-buttons
    In the silent night.
    And these I do not sell for gold,
    Or coin or silver-mine,
    But for a copper-halfpenny,
    And that will purchase nine.

    "I sometimes dig for buttered rolls,
    Or set limed twigs for crabs;
    I sometimes search the flowery knolls
    For wheels of hansom cabs.
    And that's the way" (he gave a wink)
    "I get my living here,
    And very gladly will I drink
    Your Honour's health in beer."

    I heard him then, for I had just
    Completed my design
    To keep the Menai bridge from rust
    By boiling it in wine.
    I duly thanked him, ere I went,
    For all his stories queer,
    But chiefly for his kind intent
    To drink my health in beer.

    And now if e'er by chance I put
    My fingers into glue,
    Or madly squeeze a right-hand foot
    Into a left-hand shoe;
    Or if a statement I aver
    Of which I am not sure,
    I think of that strange wanderer
    Upon the lonely moor.

      This was pleasant, but I dislike his attitude, and generally I love Lewis Carroll, so it was a little shock.

          Holy smokes! It is so much better! The command of language is far more adept. That's the problem with parodies, an originator draws out of our artistic essences, but the parodist is a lot like those pop culture versions of the Mona Lisa or other famous works you see from time to time, they can be fun, but there's a certain something which is always missing - a deeper mystery they are devoid of. That is not the best analogy, I know, but I'm sure you can understand well enough.

          Wow, I like it. It's a bit disenchanted for my tastes. I get tired of the dreary miseries of modern thinkers, but even so, it was well crafted and the imagery was so vivid. I think it was one of the stronger depictions of love and romance grown cold I've seen from a modern poet, and with less words. Sad, but beautiful still.

    I do not have a running list of men or any subcategory of that, but recent (last year or two) books of poetry that I like are

    Tom Will - You, The Viewer At Home, Moon
    Konstantin Kanelleas - Hyponeirisms
    Boris Dralyuk - My Hollywood
    I do not have any of her books but Stacy Knall I am partial to whenever I read her in various magazines
    Jeremy Reed- I never said I was nice

    Maybe too obvious to mention but have you tried any of Houellebecq's poetry?

      Thank you! No, I'm aware of Houellebecq, but I've never gotten around to him. Should I make it a priority?

        His poetry seems like the sort you would like if you like his novels, and not like if you do not like his novels.

        You can read a few here: https://www.actualidadliteratura.com/en/michel-houellebecq-poemas/

        Personally I find him overall to get a bit too morose and depressive which gets a bit predictable, which I do not really like. At least in his novels he has more room to surprise you. In his poetry not so much.

        While I am thinking of writers mostly known for their fiction and not their poetry, Borges writes masterful sonnets, very worth getting into those.

          I've enjoyed Borges on occasion, I really like his poem, "To The One Who Is Reading Me," - so cool and funny. In some ways, a more modern and direct Ozymandias.

          Hmmm, I don't think I'll like Houellebecq. The first poem in that link is very un-Christian. He may have some belief in God, but no Christian hates Christ or wallows in self-loathing existential angst. Those are people who are culturally Christian, typically, but have no real trust or faith in the love of God and the goodness of Jesus Christ. I didn't detest the rhythm of it all. He had some powerful imagery, but OH WHAT MISERY! Yet, I appreciate the recommendation nonetheless.

            I get it. I would say maybe try out the first two books I recommend, Tom Will and Konstantin Kanellas. The others not so much.

            Konstantin is Greek and orthodox, I think and Tom I am not sure but looks to be not un-Christian. Im thinking of this one in particular to base that on. I have to run but hope you like the recomendations man.

              I'm sure I'll enjoy them, thank you. That's a very interesting poem. The Biblical references are clear, but, I'll be honest, I'm uncertain I comprehend his meaning. I like that its fashioned almost parabolically as much as poetically.

      Didn't say he was, but actually, after Yeats left the occult, he went into the Christian church, calling it, "the only definite religion." However, if I had to give my opinion, based off of poetry Yeats wrote late in his life, I would say he became part of the religious institution of Christianity, but not an actual Christian - though one can't be certain about another's relationship with God.

      I'm supposing you mean me, but I'm not a reactionary. I'm just a normal Christian guy, in the mood to find good poetry I don't know by other men, and if they share my beliefs as well it just makes it possible for me to get that much more enjoyment out of it, rather than liking a poet, before encountering something blasphemous or something sinful, by our standards, and having to put their work aside.
