"Inside The Splintered Wood is tender and deeply human. Myles Gordon is simply an outstanding poet." - Kathleen Spivack, author of With Robert Lowell And His Circle

"Inside The Splintered Wood is a very funny book. But don't take this poet lightly. He'll be the one telling the "joke of utter humanity" when the place blows up."
- Natasha Saje, author of Bend

"...The debut collection from Myles Gordon is at once brave and ravenous; an embodiment of love starved for itself."
- Brendan Constantine, author of Calamity Joe

"A remarkable sonnet sequence lies at the heart of Myles Gordon's brave collection about family and history and the resulting wounds and recovery. "
- Jennifer Barber, author of Given Away

Long time, no write

Geez, it's been a year (more or less) since I've written in this blog. Time gets away... Anyone ever get into a "form" rut? For the longest time, whatever poetry I try to write has become sonnets - and these long, narrative sequences no less. One recent sequence involves a study of Ethel Rosenberg - one of America's most intriguing historical figures (I believe). I've written a few other things but nothing substantial - certainly not in the volume and intensity of free verse I was slogging out a few years ago. Just curious if anyone else has ever fallen into this sort of pattern...

Speaking of sonnets, a review of my latest chapbook (of sonnets) found here.
