American Contemporary Poetry

Have never really gotten into American poetry. Have always loved Leaves of Grass, Walt Whitman, but contemporary American poetry has always left me dry.  I have always been a Europhile, because I have always wanted to win the Nobel, so, having done my research, I determined that was the best course of action.  But in recent years, people from all over the world have been winning it. The are still predominantly winners who are influenced predominantly by Europe however. Has an American won the Nobel in the last 10 years? Someone?
