Imagine my surprise discovering that a trio of poems that I wrote for New Aesthetic Magazine, From A Hard Line, Through a Wine Bottle Darkly and Equal Monsters are in a group of poems "most viewed, last 3 months" in New Aesthetic. I'm proud of that and I thank the people at New Aesthetic for giving me the opportunity to be one of their showcased authors.
Here is what New Aesthetic has to say about my poetry included in the From A Hard Line category: "a collection of three powerful poems - from a hard line, through a wine bottle darkly and equal monsters. the poems are subtle, poignant and conversations from life, and one cannot miss the solitude of the voices in them, the framing of stray lives in a city." http://newaesthetic.in/e-books/e-book-from-a-hard-line-by-lee-gooden.html And here is the link to my other small collection on their site called New Yorker Bound? http://newaesthetic.in/e-books/new-yorker-bound.html Here is quote from New Aesthetic about my play Hierarchy: "a surreal dialogue that deals with the disturbances in traditional hierarchies of choice, the apple of self, and the three architypes of adam, eve and god. interestingly, this contemporary dialogue between a husband and a wife keeps invoking and refering back to the image of an absent little girl, reminiscent of t.s. eliot's structural strategem in the cocktail party."
