All of the poems in Prismatica: Science Fiction Poetry Spanning the Spectrum, EXCEPT for those noted as reprints in the credit listing at the end of the book, were first published in 2010 and are therefore eligible.
Any of the poems in From Nature's Patient Hands: A Collection of Poetry, EXCEPT for those noted as reprints in the credit listing at the end of the book, were first published in 2010.  While this book does not specialize in speculative poetry, certain of the poems may be considered as such by some standards; it's up to the reader.  Some possibilities include:
"Tidepiece" (short)
"Lady Autumn" (short)
"Ecological Dyslexia" (short)
"This Silken Light" (short)
"cat-and-mouse" (short)
