I am excited to announce that my latest collection of poems will be released very soon by Kelsay Books. This fourth book is my longest and most ambitious collection to date, Ranging from serious to quirky and absurd, it offers an eclectic range of poems. Though mostly free verse, it includes a number of hybrid prose, ekphrastic, and found poems as well as several sonnets and a sestina. Two-thirds of the poems included here have previously appeared in various literary journals.
Here’s one advance review:
“Gene’s craft is so airtight his poetry seems to effortlessly reveal the deeper truths that we thirst for, and they contain a gravity that our hearts simply cannot escape. He creates a complicated view of our existence, and we love how this fully engages our minds and hearts each time we return to the world of his words.”
—Jeff Sommerfeld and Jason Splichal, editors, Sky Island Journal
Stay tuned for more updates.
