Putting a poetry collection together: the order or chaos theory?

Any help appreciated here! Am researching this for an essay and would be grateful for any thoughts on the order of poems in a collection. Should they be chronological, thematic, narrative, question & response, etc., etc. or should you throw the pieces of paper in the air and collate them from where they fall?!!! If you’ve had experience of this or any views on what makes a collection a satisfying read, do let me know? In the meantime, here’s a picture of paper some paper!
