Contemporary weird poets worth reading?

I've recently begun reading all of CAS' poetry, working slowly through the 3-volume set of The Complete Poetry and Translations from Hippocampus Press.

As I've been doing this, I've become curious about poets living in our own time whose work would appeal to someone who appreciates CAS' verses. I've been impressed by the work of Wade German, and have really been enjoying his own volume from Hippocampus. What I like about German is that he acknowledges CAS as an inspiration, but he's not an imitator. He has a unique voice that makes his verses worth reading on their own merits.

(For the record, I don't know Wade German and have no connection to Hippocampus Press).

I'm curious as to what other living poets readers of this forum might recommend, in terms of writers who share spiritual or thematic bonds with CAS. Any recommendations as to other poets I should be learning about?
