In the Palm of Your Hand by Steve Kowit.

The Sounds of Poetry by Robert Pinsky.

A Poetry Handbook by Mary Oliver.

Read them. Reread them. Re-reread them. And like Clive said, read enormous amounts of good poetry. I myself am a huge fan of Billy Collins, Sharon Olds, Philip Levine and Maxine Kumin.

Best,

Fred
