    Depends on what you like...

    the Romantics are nice...Wordsworth, Shelly, Byron, Keats, and of course Coleridge.

    The energy of slaves - Leonard Cohen

    its stopped bein published, so i guess would be hard to find, but libraries should have it. thats the book that actually got me writing, maya angelou inspired me - but cohen got me writing, if that makes sense.

    Get one of these 2 books by Saul Williams...
    S.W.- She
    S.W.- The 7th Octave

    Poe is the one to look at if youre into those kind of pieces! He's idolized as the dead poet, the one who can make you feel emotion, sadness, madness, scared feelings, most of the bad emotions that people dont like...

    Anything by Nikki Giovanni...
    Anything by Jessica Care Moore...
    Anything by Taylor Mali that you can find...

    Those are my suggestions!
