Charles Bukowski, Pablo Neruda, Allen Ginsberg, Billy Collins, Sharon Olds, and tons tons more, but those, I guess, are the core set.

Where should a person that's read practically no poetry begin?

I'm rather new to poetry (well, I'm new in developing an appreciation for it), but here's an early list.....

In alphabetical order:
Gwendolyn Brooks, T.S. Eliot, Allen Ginsberg, Walt Whitman, William Carlos Williams

This list will definitely change over time.

I haven't read enough of any of these to fairly say that I'm a fan. But these are the poets that I enjoy the most, from what I have read thus far.

I'm looking forward to going further in depth though, starting with the Beats.
