One of the recent poetry collections I'd recommend is Mark Halliday's Keep This Forever. Some of its so prose-like, that it doesn't really read as poetry at all. But I would say that he's a good storyteller and a great examiner of poetry and its place in the world/with the author/and among readers. His satirical humor is also something I like in his work. What's different about this collection is it's a little more heartfelt, including some wonderful poems about his father and his father's death.
