If you have not read any good poetry yet, may i ask what are you doing?!
Here are some recommendations with no particular theme or order:
The Consolation of Apricots by Diane Ackerman, found in I Praise My Destroyer
Gate 22C by Ellen Bass
So you want to be a writer? by Charles Bukowski
Blue or Green by James Galvin
And one of my very favorite collections:
The Ink Dark Moon: Love Poems by Ono no Komachi & Izumi Shikibu
Hope this gets you going!
