A man after my own heart ...

... that would be David Barber, poetry editor of The Atlantic Monthly: Poet in Residence. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)
Don't miss the pieces linked to below on the right.

... rather than defining an ideal Atlantic poem or endorsing a particular House aesthetic, he has aimed to publish poems, in any style, that, as he puts it, strike him with their “inflected intensity… ideas, originality, verve.”

My sentiments exactly.
