And On My New Caribbean Shelf

I have recently acquired enough volumes to start a separate "Caribbean Shelf," and here's what's there so far (several more volumes are still in transit):

The Oxford Book of Caribbean Verse, edited by Stewart Brown & Mark McWatt
The End of the Alphabet by Claudia Rankine
Bilingual Blues by Gustavo Pérez Firmat
Changing Shape: New and Seected Poems by Edward Lucie-Smith
Fables from the Women's Quarters by Claire Harris
Drawing Down a Daughter by Claire Harris
New and Selected Poems: 1994 - 2002 by Kwame Dawes
Mother Jackson Murders the Moon
by Gloria Escoffery
Days and Nights of the Blue Iguana by Heather Royes
Elsewhere: New and Selected Poems by Stewart Brown
Poems by Martin Carter, edited by Stewart Brown & Ian McDonald
Albanza: New and Selected Poems 1982 - 2002, by Martin Espada

These are added to the small number of volumes I already had that now are moved to this shelf:

Collected Poems 1948 - 1984, by Derek Walcott
Omeros, by Derek Walcott
Tiepolo's Hound by Derek Walcott
The Prodigal: A Poem by Derek Walcott
The Arrivants: A New World Trilogy by Edward Brathwaite
Guinea Woman: New and Selected Poems, by Lorna Goodison

Additionally, a volume that overlaps this group to a significant extent:

Paper Dance: 55 Latino Poets, edited by Victor Hernandez Cruz, Leroy V. Quintana, & Virgil Suarez
