New American Poet Laureate

Simic’s successor is Kay Ryan. Here are some poems of hers and the following quote is from a NY Times article

“I so didn’t want to be a poet,” Ms. Ryan, 62, said in a phone interview from her home in Fairfax, Calif. […] But in the end “I couldn’t resist,” she said. “It was in a strange way taking over my mind. My mind was on its own finding things and rhyming things. I was getting diseased.”
