I would very much like to recommend Eve Luckring‘s powerful, enveloping collection, The Tender Between, beautifully published by Ornithopter Press. As it’s eloquently written on the back of the book, “The Tender Between negotiates a linguistic terrain at once forming and falling apart. Through fragmented text and deftly recast associations, Eve Luckring questions the assumptions that define self/world. . . . This is a spare, precise poetry attentive to every syllable.”

A rather restrained sampling:
