Poetry. Cross a waterfall with a cave, and you get the poetry of John Goode. His poems occupy a turbulent landscape, ghosted with shadows, full of movement. They are dangerous, craggy, sensuous, and vulnerable. The cascade of his surreal images and wild juxtapositions are disorienting in the best possible way. Somewhere between post modernism and mystic realism, his rapid fire similes weave neon tapestries of urban social decay and heartbreak covering a dark wit and social commentary. One of the best of a new generation.

He was nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2004. He was Runner-Up for the Neil Postman Award for Metaphor from Rattle in 2008. And his chapbook, GRADUATING FROM ETERNITY, was First Runner-Up for the Ronald Wardall Award from Rain Mountain Press in 2009. He lives in Chicago, and bartends somewhere along the dark shores of the moon.

Review:

Cross a waterfall with a cave, and you get the poetry of John Goode. His poems occupy a turbulent landscape, ghosted with shadows, full of movement. They are dangerous, craggy, sensuous, and vulnerable. The cascade of his surreal images and wild juxtapositions are disorienting in the best possible way. They might carry you over the edge. --Nina Corwin, Author of The Uncertainty of Maps

Somewhere between post modernism and mystic realism is the poetry of John Goode. His rapid fire similes weave neon tapestries of urban social decay and heartbreak covering a dark wit and social commentary. One of the best of a new generation. --David Hargarten, publisher Exact Change Only

The caliber of John Goode's poems and images are so consistently high that not one stands out as the definition. This poet measures essences of truths, heavy, gritty and immense. Distinctly animal. Effortlessly male. The very blood of art graces these pages. Rampant, beautiful, and aware. --Dana Jerman
