With a strong narrative, obscure and interesting ones preferred.
(Hoping that poem--->prose will be easy mode for A level English c/w)

Thanks.

Thanks, however i need one with a narrative.

Or something like "Pale Fire" which could perhaps be turned into some descriptive prose.

Phil Levine is your man. Look for the poem "What Work Is."

Also, Steven's "Sunday Morning," Eliot's "Pufrock" and pretty much anything by Bukowski will have a strong narrative.

I like Levine, too. Anne Sexton is my favorite poet.
