2. salt. by Nayyirah Waheed
The free verse poems in this beautiful and moving collection of work may be short, but they nonetheless pack a poignant punch. Poet and author Nayyirah Waheed, called "perhaps the most famous poet on Instagram," unpacks love (and the learning of self-love), race issues, and so much more in salt. Definitely a must-read for any lover of modern poetry.
