Morning Walk with Dead Possum, Breakfast and Parallel Universe
The personal and the political, the dark and the light, the tame and the wild, the blood and the earth meet in Morning Walk with Dead Possum, Breakfast and Parallel Universe. Her unique voice amplified by her skillful command of poetic form and tradition, Gordon’s lyrics brim with cats and omelets, her prose poems with Led Zeppelin and Morrissey; her sonnet crowns contain French toast and James Taylor’s rehab center, and “phones [are] on silent” in her aubade. Go with her to this liminal space where the ordinary and the extraordinary make magic together.
—Jessie Janeshek, author of MADCAP, The Shaky Phase, and Invisible Mink
