Ladies and gentlemen, I’d like to request a moment of your time.
The Greatest Poet Alive, as you can see by the title, is a gentleman by the name of James Gordon.
Don’t let the name fool you though; the man wears humility like a second skin and is as gracious and courteous as anyone I’ve ever come across. Of course, that’s what I get from only knowing of James online. Still, as far as I’m concerned, he’s cool peoples.
James is not only a poet, but he’s an author, too. For those of you who don’t follow his Twitter or Facebook Page, you may not have heard that, some time ago, he released his “erotic autobiography”, Revenge of the Orgasm. 72 reviews later, he has naught but 4 and 5 star reviews.
I’m going to take this to mean that everyone should read this book because that’s a pretty good record.
Revenge of the Orgasm was a new style of poetry that I enjoyed all the way through. It has a voice, I could actually hear this man talking to me. It was sexy and intimate, I didn’t want it to end. I want that voice to keep speaking to me. It was a truly wonderful experience to read this work of art. Thank you GPA.
It’s evident that the man knows how to strike the right chords with his words, plucking the right strings and knowing just what to say to…well, as one reviewer of his acclaimed work put it, “Leave me hot and bothered.”
It’s also evident, though, that James isn’t your typical poet bidden by Eros. What I mean is, you’re not under threat of your teeth rotting out or contracting diabetes. It ain’t that sweet. But his words are raw, a particular kind of rawness that appeals to the carnal, yet gentle nature of the reader.
And I do dare say, should any man need to learn how to speak to a woman with class and confidence, G.P.A. is the poet to read AND listen to:

And if that doesn’t get you worked up, check out the Facebook Page of the man himself.
But wait, there’s more. G.P.A. makes appearances on Twitter. If you happen to come from where he’s from, stay tuned to catch any updates on any live performances G.P.A. might be into.
I think James has taken the word and done with it as he saw fit, putting out pieces that both men and women can appreciate.
There’s definitely something for everyone.
