No! ! Don't read other poetry. Do you want to compromise your innate genius? You should consider other poets as complete asses. Do your own thing! Other poets will destroy your creativity. Other poets are sh*t! Well, let's say 'manure', shall we?Be poetic about it. Okay, here's a poet's mind at work. " Other poets are poo" Better. Much better. Other 'good contemporary poets' are very sucky. The only reason to read them is to learn from their many mistakes. They are mostly boring. You won't be able to understand a word they're saying, and 90 % of poets " swing the other way" You get my drift?My advise is to don't read at all. Nothing. Just write anything that you please. It will be fantastic, trust me.

First read good poets (classic and conntemporary) than go for writing...
